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

11th April 2007. Applied more filler and made bilge rubbers.

The two original strakes are covered with glass cloth. When I removed the paint I exposed the weave.


My first attempt at filling did not fill the weave but this time I seem to have mastered it.

I made the bilge rubbers from "bent" pieces of Iroko.
