The Restoration of 'Lady J' - Week Four - Progress Seems Slow, Though it Isn't . . .

Time for an update. Some of the issues faced this week are iron sick floors, sprung planks and a bad plank, along with the seam reefing and detailing of the planks for varnish. I picked up a nice piece of Sapele for the bad plank and took care of it today.

I cut the piece and fitted it in with shims at first.

I bored the new screw holes prior to glue up and thenmixed epoxy and mahogany sawdust. I set the scarph joint with screws and let it cook a bit before I had big Zach press the new plank flush while I drove screws.

It flushed out nicely.

The boys worked the seams again today.

I should do these last three salon ribs tomorrow.

and so it goes....
