(Nova Scotia, Canada)
Hi, I'm refastening a wooden thirty foot sailboat.
The boat has three quarter pine planks on inch and a half square oak frames fastened with nail sick, rusted galvanized clinch nails.
My question is, after the old nail is extracted the wood is ringed with rust, is it advisable to replace the iron fasteners with bronze or stainless screws or would the iron salts in the wood cause early galvanic corrosion on the new fastening.
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.
