Oh Joy refit 10/21/09
 
We finally tracked down all of the hidden screws that attached the bulkheads to the house. It wasn't easy....

Here you can see the house sitting on it's rods.

Here's a picture of the bare foredeck.

Here are some shots of bulkhead attachment points.

My Sonicrafter threw it's washer and bolt so we had to go ahead and pull the tank early to find it. The tank had a pipe leading into it that had been repaired with a giant glob of JB Weld or something and had been leaking.

The house is a disaster now and will look worse before she's done.

Now I've gotta figure out how to get the house on the ground without tearing it up.

And I thought we had a 'project'. Hearts out to you and may you persevere!

Wow Charlie - when I had been last there topside looked well and so did below... Sorry your having to go through the expense and effort. Glad you did though - historic and I know you love owning a one of a kind...

CharlieCobra 10-22-2009 12:38 AM

You are right Jody. Only 5 built, Yawls that is, and this is the only one built as she was. She's worth the effort.

Charlie Charlie Charlie.......all I can say is wow. Man that is dedication to a cause.....and in this case I'd reckon a good one.

I doffs me Akubra to you mate.

Somebody's gotta do it...

Any leaks in the roof?.... or are you staying nice and dry?..2.3" in last 72 hours here...ugg!

Just when you really begin to hate fiberglass, you see something like this. Thanks, I needed that!

One leak off of the boat to the side. No issues there.

Gary, wood is cool. You can fix anything on a wood boat.

A wood boat is just several thousand little jobs done well.

Fixing one is just figuring out which ones to undo... and how.

JohnRPollard 10-27-2009 09:31 AM

Wow!:eek:

I'm glad to see you've got a roof over your head.

I agree, I'd rather be working with wood if I'm going to be tearing apart a boat. (But, I'd much rather be out sailing!;) )

Hang in there, Charlie. I'm sure she'll be a beauty again when you're done. :) Keep us posted.
