Just to bring the restoration up to date
by Don Boufford
This is Don the owner of this nifty wooden Picaroon.
Well best laid plans about finishing and launching have had some setbacks - too many boats; cars and other responsibilities have pushed back the launch date BUT NO MORE!
I have scraped and sanded and resin coated and painted and well you get the picture, there are a few more tasks like finishing the replacement of the roof and getting the undercoat on and then launch.
I have rented a mooring next to my Landfall 40 so both boats will be taking on Lake Ont. and the 1000 islands as of this May 15th - as long as the snow clears up or even if it doesn't.
The restoration wasn't a horrible task as she is in very good shape.
so it really was cosmetics and some other relatively minor tasks.
Part of the delay was also doing some significant recovery of the Landfall 40 due to a lift out issue which nearly had me with one less boat - - - - - another story.
I will post Picaroon pictures after the launch.
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.
