Replacing Ribs dispite Cement Bilge's....
I have a predicament, I'm repairing some broken ribs in my recently purchased 1940's Pitch pine on oak gaff cutter, long keel yacht.
She's about 24ft long.
However I've hit a little snag, the previous owner has filled the bilge with ferro-cement.
While replacing the ribs isn't a massive issue, getting through the cement to fit the ribs to the keel could be.
Do you have any recommendations with regards to removing the cement, how much damage that will cause to the keel, working around the cement or any other methods or ideas you might have on this subject.
Literally everything and anything you can suggest will be welcome!
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.
