Annapolis Area Surveyor
Does anyone have a good recommendation? Need someone who can evaluate a coldmolded hull on a restored 1929 sloop.

Look up Fred Hecklinger 410-268-3108

I second Fred Hecklinger!

I didn't know they knew anything about cold molding in 1929, just traditional plank on frame (correct me if I am wrong). Cold molding usually refers to multiple layers of wood strips, with each piece fully encapsulated in epoxy, and usually a layer or 2 of glass on the exterior.
Maybe it's a layer or 2 of fiberglass over the original hull? If it is, it's usually just a last ditch attempt to keep a sinking boat afloat. The glass keeps it floating, but the wood planks and frames continue to rot, not a proper fix. Tell us more about this one, please.

Thanks all - Fred is looking at the boat this morning. Seems very knowledgeable.

Good to hear you got Fred! He did an incredible job surveying my Hunter 340
