(Riverside Ca USA)
She was built in 1901 -06 she is 67 ft on deck.
The boat is not mine, she was pulled out of the water about 2 years ago.
Only planks and deck were going to be replaced but after taking her apart we found that she was
in bad shape.
I've replaced all her frames 1 by 1 to keep her shape, all 104 of them.
We double planked her.
So far its taken about 340 pcs spiled and shaped to complete the hull and I still need the garboard planks.
I've replaced all deck beams ,new rudder new transom , well I guess every thing has been replaced with the same kind of wood or better.
So far I am working on the house and center board.
I started working on this boat knowing nothing about boats, Ive worked on it alone and had help once in a while.
I have a very good teacher who explains to me how to do it, and he's a master on boats.
There's so much that I can write about the boat but I can tell you this, that it has been a great learning experience for me and I love it!
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.
