Taking the Boat out of the Water
by Steve Baker
My insurance company say that the wooden folkboat, that I'm about to buy should be taken out of the water from the beginning of November to the end of March, but my surveyor says that it should not be out for so long.
Can anyone tell me what is best for the boat.
She is Mahogany on oak frames Edge nailed carvel construction with no caulking between the planks.
She has been out of the water for most of the summer and the planks have opened up here and there but the surveyor says she should take up within 48 hours, if that works out then I will buy the boat but don't want it to happen again if she is lifted out over winter.
Any help would be appreciated.
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.
