PENOBSCOT 14 LAPSTRAKE WITH ROTTEN GARBOARD
by Edward Mordis
(Boynton Beach,fl. USA)
I built this boat with 1/4 marine plywood but neglected to observe the garboard that became moist and rotted.
The piece I have removed is 12 inches long and 4 inches wide.
Thought of making a template with luan and attaching new marine plywood with epoxy but am not sure this is the right approach.
Any suggestions would be most appreciated.
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.
