Fitting new planks to a clinker built ex-on board lifeboat
by Bll Hadfield
I will be using either Cedar or Spruce for the planks but I am not sure if the timber should be fresh sawn or dry.
Fresh sawn is much easier to bend but the problem could be shrinkage.
Dry timber would not shrink very much but its difficult to bend.
Any advice very welcome
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.
