Maintenance of a norwegian lapstrake
Hi Folks - we have a pretty little wooden norwegian lapstrake, little used, and I want to get it out and put some miles on it (has been in storage in our garage) -
I vaguely remember the guy who gave it to us telling me something about swelling it, and oiling it?
Absolutely no clue what to do.
All I know is it is wooden and that he said it's a Norwegian lapstrake....any help would be greatly appreciated.
I'm not sure if I'm supposed to wet it first, oil it first, etc....I do know he said to use a good quality linseed oil.
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.
