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

7th June 2008. Latest Mods.

.I spliced some wood onto the bottom of the main mast to make it square. Also inserted a sheave to take the main halyard.

Halyards now secured at rear of cabin.

Centreplate hoist with 2:1 purchase. My centreplate is lifted from the rear.

Made mattresses and covers.
