Joining short frames to the keel under the centerboard trunk

by Dennis
(San Francosco, CA)

I am planning to begin restoration of a 26' Monomoy whaleboat.

I have a partial copy of the plans including lines and some details, but not a complete set.

Previous owners started and stopped this project many times, resulting in missing pieces and incomplete assemblies.

My major issue is how to tie the short frames to the keel along the centerboard trunk.

As the boat is now, the center section of the keel containing the centerboard slot has been removed but is sitting under the boat.

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 the conversations.
So, please come on over and join our community of likeminded Wooden Boaters.
