What is the correct method for repairing a cracked Rib
What is the correct method for repairing a cracked rib.
It needs to stand up to a survey.
What we have done so far is to remove the cracked section of the existing rib, (6'' each side) scarfing the ends.
Then laminated marine ply in position gluing with Balcotan Poyleuthene glue.
Fixed in position with copper nails and roves as built day one.
Is this O.K?
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.
