Hello folks, I own a 1939 S&S sloop "Weekender" built in South Boston by Lawley and son.
We just completed a 8 year restoration on her and photos can be found at MYC Yacht Club web site.
Have owned the boat since 1977 and did a rebuild way back in 1980's from waterline down ,however never realized bilge stringers were detached from hull so had to tackle that as well as replace about 7 feet of fore foot and stem, 90% of floors ,keel bolts from galvanize, 20% frames with accompanied blocks, replaced entire horn timber ,built new rudder.
In the most recent restoration, New plywood deck w? dynel and West over , New bulwarks , new cabin trunk sides, new cockpit seats and sole , new stainless brackets in bilge area with new stainless keel bolts and many many more items too much to mention.
Thanks for the opportunity for joining fellow souls in this most rewarding endeavor.
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.
