Another quick update

Hi everyone,
Just to let everyone know. I have arrived back in St Thomas on Monday,
and got straight to work on my own boat.
I have bought a pile of oak and have been templating the frames and cutting the laminations.
I am very happy to report the first frame (15) has been repaired and the reinforcing sister has been 'wested' and bolted to it. Pics 1 & 2

I have nearly cut out all laminations for frame 14...But unfortunatly the frame has broken higher up than I thought, so now I have to remove the furniture above to effect a repair.
Not expected and a bit more work when I have to put it all back together.
More info coming

  1. Hi Roy, looks like a great repair, better than original! Did you steam the frames to get them into that shape? Llew is asking.
