Aloha everyone...I know most people switch from Wood boats to Fiberglass
ones but I am considering going the other way. I have the opportunity of picking up for extremely cheap
, an Alden cutter
built in the 30's. I once knew the owner who passed on a few years back. The boat has been surveyed and the garboards need to be replaced and an engine
installed which is currently in storage
after it was rebuilt. It is of famous lineage which I will not disclose at this time since I do not want to give its location away.
My question is, how long would I be able to haul her out of the water
for a refit
and what are the proper proceedures in doing so? I have heard to spray the hull
down once a week, inside and out, with salt water
in a garden sprayer and so on. I may want to keep it on land for a few years. If you have any suggestions or know of a good book to buy, let me know.
