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

1st January 2007 Removed bits and pieces

As well as stripping more paint I have removed various bits. There are pieces of wood trim around the cockpit.

Strangely, there is some GRP under some trim!

As I will be replacing the rudder case, I needed to remove the mast step/ rudder surround.

Underneath was a strange sight. All damp and fungus!

The wood was still damp with a little rot.

There is a nice bit of wood under the dark varnish.
