As she is at the moment Jan 2013 Medusa as she is today - Starboard side As she was for Sale 4 years ago

Medusa is a 30ft John Hanna Tahiti Ketch built 1957 lying near Truro, Cornwall, UK

The heads and cabin are starting to be removed so I can get to the frame and beams which need replacing

The deck and upper side planking needs replacing, the colours of many previous coats are now
showing through she is looking very poorly with all the paint coming off

Five or six Beams need replacing as once revealed many have been burnt to Charcoal.

I have until the end of April to get her fit to sail - as I will no longer have this mooring.

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 the conversations.
So, please come on over and join our community of likeminded Wooden Boaters.
