removing bad part of a plank on a clinker built boat
by bill hadfield
I have removed all the copper rivets and can get some movement from the plank but I cant figure out how to cut the scarf joint in the 'good' wood part of the plank.
I am tempted to drill some holes and use a keyhole saw to just cut the 'bad' part of the plank and then try to 'spring' the remaining piece to allow a saw to cut the scarf.
I know I must be careful not to damage the old plank because it will be needed as a template.
My boat is an ex-onship life boat which has had a cabin built onto it
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.
