1901 sloop "Herald"
by Caroline Edwards
2010 saw this little lady and fell in love
1901 sloop "Herald".
She was originally a yawl but the mizzen mast was removed in the 1930s
NOT SURE WHAT TO DO AND WITH WHAT!
I have taken my boat out of the water last Nov to re antifoul her.
My partner at the time and I stripped her completely and brought her hull back up.
Looking closely now I have found cracks in the red putty I put on v soft under her anti foul not everywhere but in some places.
I stripped where the hull was wet I guess.
I will have to take out the putty and replace..
I don't know with what other than 3M 5200 adhesive sealant which I can't get or not sure I can afford it or that matter.
I'm on my own (novice) and am worried I may have to strip the hull completely.
