I have, I think, a 6,5m Petterson boat?
It has everyother rib metal and is made of I think mahogany.
I have looked at many pictures of Petterson boats and they seem to be similar but mine is built for outboard motor? (could be that it is shortened and made this way afterwards)
my biggest question is should I have to caulk this boat?
I have brought it to the shore and put a pump pumping water into it for about 1 day and it seems to tighten up.
Should a wood boat need this?
Everything seems solid except for the transom this will have to be replaced.
And then a good sanding and varnishing should bring it back to life.
Thanks in advance,
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.
