The 'Lass' is a an ex-MFV, which we are working on in an attempt to give her a new lease of life in her retirement.
We need to replace the 60 year old deck, but we can't afford (time and money) to do this for a few years.
However in the mean time we are (as with almost all wooden boats) having difficulties with drips through the deck.
The hull is sound, so no worries there.
We wondered whether anyone had any advice on how to cut down on the drips.
Even with all the rain we have had lately the planks haven't swelled enough to stop the leaks.
Whilst we know that what we should do is strip it back and re-caulk, we don't really want to do this if we are going to replace the whole thing in a few years time.
Any advice on how to reduce the amount of pots, pans and take-out containers scattered around down below would be gratefully received!
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.
