I purchased a 14 ft runabout which needs a bit of work.

Hi Dennis,

Well Rosie looks real good as she is.

Is there much needs to be done to her?

I hope you will come back and let us know how you are getting on with the work.

Have fun.

Thanks Mike.

I am waiting for a book from DT Press to arrive.

The transom has some rot near the hull, and I plan on replacing it.

I purchased the solid Honduras Mahogany and the bronze fasteners.

I would appreciate any good insight in this area of restoration, from someone who has "been there done that".

I have been working with Dr Rot on the product I will need to preserve her.

I only hope I can get her back to her glorious form on the water.

I had the pleasure of launching her only 4 times before deciding that she needs attention.

Return to Your Wooden Boat Projects...

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 the conversations.
So, please come on over and join our community of likeminded Wooden Boaters.
