Peeling a Wooden Hull

Betcha didn't know you could do this! They come out real nice, ready for sanding. Saves a ton of work. This 38' Chris was stripped to a bare hull in four hours, no setup, very little clean up.

Chris Crafts are batten seam construction, no copper rivets. You pretty much only break out the bucking iron and copper rivets for lightweight lapstrake construction. Peeler eats red lead for lunch, no problems. It's only the idiots who cement fill seams that make this impossible.


Surprised, somebody actually posted to one of my threads! Thanks, Atoll.
