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

13th February 2007. Second strake and centreboard case fitting.

Finished bevelling the second strakes for a perfect fit.

Fitted butt straps inside and out.

Used 6mm bolts.

Butt straps. The inner 9mm ply one will be bonded inside whilst the outside one will be removed once the resin is set.

I braced the middle bulkhead and cut away the rest of the centreboard case. After I have finished planking and re-inverted the hull I will remove most of this bulkhead.

Dry fitted centreboard case to see if it fitted. It did!

The new rear of cabin / front of cockpit bulkhead will be at the rear of the centreboard case.

Bonded the two sides of the centreboard case and the end fillets.
