Re: Maintaining a Timber Boat

My last boat Diva was a could moulded kauri ply(3skins) over mahogany frames, epoxy saturated...when I sold it last year, the surveyor was very impressed...a 40yr old boat and nothing had moved, no joins detached...perfect.
But as previous posters have said, this is probably not what you would call a "timber" boat, even though it is wholly constructed of wood.

This is a great construction method that has stood the test of time.

Re: Maintaining a Timber Boat

Here is more pictures of the Schooner project. I sanded the bottom, cleaned out the old cotton and have applied a copper wood preservative, and then brushed in a mixture of Pine tar and boiled linseed oil into the seams.
