'Oh Joy' Restoration - More Work . . .

We were stripping varnish again today and I hooked the canvas on the foredeck, ripping it. After pulling it back some more, I found it to be rotten as it would tear into big strips by hand. I started pulling more off and found some small soft spots around mounting holes for the hawse pipes and stanchion bases. Some of the holes for the canvas tacks were soft and damp. This weldwood decking has held up well and the softness doesn't go through or spread.

Here's a couple of pics of the foredeck area.





This corner piece on the house trim should probably be replaced too.



A bit of dry rot on the edge of the port.



Aft is where I found the worst rot in the deck and after I dug it out, it was only a few layers deep.



Here's that red crap I found when I scraped the paint up. Some previous repair I suppose.



I've quite a bit more canvas to pull but the results so far are encouraging.

"Oh (the) Joy(s)" of a wooden boat!

Thanks for sharing the photos, Charlie. 'Bout time for another one of your sailing stories? I always like reading them.

If I can go sailing anytime soon, it'll have to be on OPB's. Oh Joy isn't going anywhere for a while.

You got my sympathy Charlie. Imagine is all wood, and a couple of issues showed up after a year. They weren't hard fixes. It was just that I didn't have any skills in wood. I am getting pretty damned good now after nearly 7 years.......i2f

Well Charlie, now that you are into it, you may as well take your time, and do it right!
During much work on my boat, I often found that I would uncover more issues. if they were purley cosmetic, I didn't worry about fixing all of them, but if it meant keeping water out in the future, etc, I would fix them.



And getting out on water on OPBoats is a good idea, to preserve the sanity. I'd offer a ride on mine, but I am on the oppsoite coast!

Keep the pics coming!
