Re: 28ft Croatian white oak sloop
Hey guys, just about a year ago I picked up this 28ft no name sloop, built and sailed from Dalmatia, Croatia. 28ft with a 10ft beam, The hull is built from 1 1/2" thick white oak planking and the frame is built from Dalmatian Pine.
I live in Split, Croatia, and I have similar boat, but mine is in much worse condition. Those boats were built in Betina, vilage with small shipyard on Murter Island in Croatian part of Adriatic sea, in '60 and '70, and most of them were exported in USA.
This is not noname boat. It's name is Viking 28.
The hull is built from pine (1") on oak's frame (1 1/2").
I am interested to see your progress, can you post more pictures?
