A record of the renovation of a
Wooden Drascombe Longboat 'Otter'

27th September 2006. First look at Otter

Went to have a look at Otter at Cleveden. Interesting boat. Unusual foredeck and cuddy.

The garboards were rotten. Seems to have been caused by rainwater. Centreplate case is also rotten. The rest of the boat seems sound.

Managed to strike a deal with Bob (right).
