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,
