We finally bought our first sailboat! A custom wood 35' sloop
built in 1959 by Rolland Lewis in Prince Rupert, BC. Sometime in the 70's some one laid some thick fiberglass
over the hull
. And in the 90's a complete make over was done to the boat, as the previous owner got her ready for offshore
sailing, sailing her from Alaska
for 2 years... That being said... for the last 5 years she mostly sat attached to the dock
and was used as a 'party boat'...
So the poor old girl wasted away a bit from 5 years of partying... we have some leaks
in the pilothouse, and some patches of wood that need replacing, and a small area of delmaination on deck
Looking for advice on the best way to solve soft wood problems due to small leaks
, here are some of the problems:
- Leaking portholes in pilothouse
- soft wood at the bottom of pilothouse front window, no leak noticable
- rotten edge of plywood on pilothouse roof near hatch
- leaking hatch, small leak, not sure how the water is getting in yet
- 1 foot of delamination just above fuel tank on deck, probably caused by a small crack around the fuel intake cap.
