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

18th February 2007. Made new bulkhead and dry fitted it

Made bulkhead in two halves having made a hardboard template first.

Assembling it was a problem. It rests on the deck at the bottom edge so it can come in that way. Each half is trapped between the side bench and the doubler so it can't go fore and aft. At the top it has to tuck under the hog. The centreboard case passes through the middle.

With much cunning I found a way of assembling it.
