A Refastening Question
(Virginia Beach, Va)
Have a 1960s Grand Banks 32 that needs refastening not because of obvious problems but because it's been 40 years.
In the interest of conservation of limited funds ( as I can't do the work myself) is it acceptable, to simply put new screws in without disturbing the old fastenings.
My goal obviously isn't a classic restoration but rather to have a safe secure hull.
There is no current evidence of problems but it's likely that after 40 years there's a lot of crevice corrosion in the existing fastenings.
Can I get by by adding new screws?
While the original system
worked quite well as a one-off post, it didn’t allow for updating or
posting new photographs etc.
That is why I have
introduced the new Your Pages.
This is new ‘Community’
platform is for 2018.
It is designed to put you
in control of your content, make it easier to for you to tell us about
your Wooden Boat, upload photos etc. and most of all post updates as
and when you wish to.
There is also a forum where
you can ask any questions you may have about Wooden Boats and join in
So, please come on
over and join our community of likeminded Wooden Boaters.
