I am reconstructing a 34' steel ketch
. I had it parked on a trailer (yacht hauler lowboy) at the local fabricator. We put 5 new sheets
of steel ,garboards , coachroof sections, hatch surrounds, portlight rings (the main issue as leaking ports
flooded the engine), companionway
, complete new cockpit
, stiffeners, chain locker, you name it. The point being, the owner is 6'4/6'5, If I had thought of it (please don't tell, I thought of everything else!) then raising the coachroof 2" would have been nothing. The corners are all square! Two days, two guys then grind and fair, the interior
was rotted anyway. Just a thought.
