Blackened floor of cedar strip boat
(Wakefield Quebec, Can.)
I would like to restore this 58 Peterborough...
When the plywood floor was removed exposing the original floor there appears to be a burned or blackened look...
Is this mold...
It looks like someone put some clear coat over the stain.

It could be mold if moisture was trapped between the plywood and the original.
Or, perhaps more likely, it is the remains of the glue or bedding compound used when the ply was fitted???
Is there any damage to the original?
Any obvious reason why it was covered?~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
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.
