My Project for the next few months

Hi All
Not many older boats avalible down this way. I managed to find one. She was designed by Gustav Estlander and built in 1933 33 ft 9ton . She has been vandalised by the preveous owner and need loads of work. My wife has a Royal Cape One Design boat to rebuild.
Regards
Butch

She doesn't look too bad but on older wooden boats looks are deceiving. I hope that ypu did a good survey and all your problems are cosmetic.

Good Luck

Silly boy buying yet another boat. Punishment will be....You are required to produce and provide a photo essay of all work in process. Yep that should do it. Lets see if you buy a third after that punishment. :-)

Hi Alan
Will do.I am moving her home in two weeks time.I have a few photos showing what has to be done to the old girl.The second boat(RCOD) is my wifes boat so no input from me and have been told hands off.

A sailing school in Cape Town ran a ad that read If you think sailing is in your blood have it tested. Well the rest is history.

Regards
Butch

My Project for the next few months um mabe that should be year

Ok . Boat is now at home . Stripped one side toe rail and aluminum tread plate cladding the deck. Aft deck is ply forward is oak both shot as the aluminum traped moisture and commenced the cycle of rot. Stripped some paint and discoverd a veneer sheath.Two planks down all is rotten to some degree below that to the keel just patches of we rot and the odd spot of iron sickness on the bulckheads bolts. Although she is Caravel hulled no sign of caulking.Could have been removed at the time she was sheethed? Will post pics next time arround.
Regards
Butch

What are those green and cream colored bubbly shaped things? Strangest stuff I have ever seen on a boat!

Looks like something out of a bad horror movie

Lemme guess, it's spray foam which was used to seal either a deck or bulkhead that was shifting out of place.

Yes, I was guessing some kind of foam as I hit "submit".

Sorry, I have nothing constructive to offer. I once owned a plywood Lightning built by a distant relative many years ago, but it was in relatively good shape and much simpler in construction so I did not have to do much to it.
