Valiant, A Charles Crosby Catboat

by Doug McQuilken

In the midst of a restoration of this century old sailboat.

Philippine mahogany over steamed white oak ribs.

Decking is white pine with IMHO a pretty patina.

Carvel planking & transom completed.

Currently rebuilding centerboard trunk - then rudder, then hatches, then interior, etc.
But, you know how it goes....

Valiant has her own website if you would like to check on progress: https://dougmcq000.wixsite.com/valiant
