I thought I'd post some of the progress I've made so far...LOTS!!!!
Rebuilt bow from the side
From above, needs a little work on the nose..
Another view from above
Repaired ribs. Missing space is where the dagger box was.
Brand new knees port,
New cedar cockpit liner port,
Replaced the original forward cockpit liner.
The original after cockpit liner was utilized as well. I kept both of them rough as to reveal the heritage and age. You can also see the original brass fittings for the cover to fit into.
Completed cockpit from forward...
Fitting the original cover to assure it still fits after the refurb work. The cover needs A LOT of work as well.
Blue tape is the spot on the forward liner board where I'll put the brass plate I'm having made dedicating this boat to my son. I'm considering putting it on the aft cockpit liner.
I welcome your comments and/or advice. Or, if you have a few cedar boards laying around... a donation. :-)
Or, swing by for a tour and a beer.
