Project profile: "WHIMBREL"   << back to Restoration

This boat needed some new floor timbers, sister framing, and keel bolts. The old floor timbers had softened, allowing the keel bolts to pull and work when the boat was under sail. We also replaced some deteriorated planking and re-caulked the bottom.

The images below detail some of the restoration process. Please click on an image to view a larger version.
