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.
