With a boat which has been laid up for the winter, it's a good idea to have some sawdust and a broom on hand.
After the boat is in the water, cast sawdust onto the surface and sweep it under the boat with the broom.
Any water finding its way inside will carry some sawdust with it which will enter the seams and swell thereby slowing the flow of water.
This will give the boat planking an opportunity to swell and cut the water off.

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.
