“Dulcie” was built in 1902 (approx.) she has pitch pine planking on oak frames with pine decking.
My Boat, "Dulcie" is about to need some/all of her deck planks replacing.
At the moment, she has pine decks.
My question is this, what kind of pine should I use, as there is no mention of the kind of pine used.
The hull is pitch pine on oak.
The other question is:- when I cut the lengths of pine, should the edges be square, or should they be at a slight angle.
It looks fairly straight forward job????.
Looking forward to your response.
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.
