William Osbourne Kestral Class Cruiser

William Osbourne not quite sure of the length,

I think its a Kestrel class cruiser, so it could be 28 foot, but I was told 34 foot.

the diagnostic stage.
by: Graham

I am really at the diagnostic stage.

The wheel house is bad, and some transom planks need replacing, the stem post has de laminated at the bend and the inside needs gutting and rebuilding. and the engines are unknown at this stage they are lister twin, twin cylinders

I will stick at it. The problem I am not a carpenter just an enthusiast.

But I know rotten wood when I see it.

So I am bit of learning by doing will have to suffice


Regards

Graham





send me some images of the stern planking

Hello Graham

if you can send me some images of the stern planking I can have a look. Where do you keep the boat, I am based in South London and my boat is on the Thames.

I am just about to order a load of good Mahogany for my new cabin sides and can't wait to get the project done and get the boat back in the water,

regards,

James
