I just signed up so yes I'm new, I have been checking out the posts for about a year and I'm impressed with what I've read. My wife and I have two boats a 12'6" sailing dingy lap strake hull
and a 20' Steve Redmond "Elver". The Elver is the boat
you will be hearing about as I repair the stem post due to dry rot
so if anyone feels like giving advice please do.
