45 days at the boatyard

We spent 45 days working hard on the boat.
Average 6/7 hours each day. Now the boat is in the best condition we could give her until the next two years or so.
When we take her off, we found some planks that needed to be changed, like this (of course the wood was taken off to replace, the boat didn't get visible holes!)



Then the carpenter replaced the starboard wood



And the port wood


Then he did the caulking




Then after 45 days we take her back to the water, when I almost died as she began to take on a lot of water, but now after four days she's almost dry



Thank you all who gave me some advice before we take her off.
best wishes

Re: 45 days at the boatyard

Nice looking work there. Yeah, it's scary when they first go back in. We had to grab an extra pump AND use the manual for the first 15 minutes when we launched Lady J. Scary stuff....

Good job! I am most impressed. Lovely boat too!

If you happen to stumble upon my post, PLS be so kind and let me know how you protected the keel. Is it primer (the orange thing?) over cast iron?

I have a rusty keel here and hence exploring the options.

Cheers,

Re: 45 days at the boatyard

Hi: we used minium for the iron parts of the keel. This keel is half wood, half cast iron.
Thanks for your comment.
best wishes

Re: 45 days at the boatyard

This was more or less the before and after the keel treatment.
