Oh Joy resto 11/24/09

I figured out a way to get the house off finally. We put it on wheels and will roll it forward on the temporary decking so a big forklift can slide it's forks under straps and lift it off and out.



and forward



Some new mizzen deck beams.



and side deck beams. I didn't like the fit of some previous ones and redid them.



Still have some locust left.



Waiting to be cut on the new to me gear.



That's a very nice little saw. The table tilts both ways which helps with all of the angles and notches.

Charlie - Nice to see that you are no longer ripping things out and are finally putting things back together. Although it has been (and will be) alot of work, it is nice to see someone who has taken the time and effort to do it right!

Can't wait to see more pics as you continue to make progress.

Cheers!

Nice looking bit of kit is that saw.

Charlie,

What timber are using there for the cross beams ?

I still have much to rip out. I need to pull the cabin sole and the cockpit so I can eyeball the things I can't yet see. Just taking time to build some new parts first. It makes it feel like progress is being made...

That's the little Craftsman saw that Scott bought me.

I'm using Black Locust for all of the framing to be done on the old girl. I plan to do it once and never worry about it again. In New England they have a very old saying, "Black locust fence posts last exactly one year less than Granite ones." There's nothing like it for boat building.

Amazing Charlie! Many would have given up by now. I see them abandoned all over Maine in all states of disrepair. It's great to see you saving one. Nothing sails like a woody!!

I sure have enjoyed following your progress and have been amazed at the level of tenaciousness you've displayed in this labor of love. She is a lucky ship indeed to have found such a high level of stewardship in your care. My hat is off to you sir....WOW!...

Maine Sail, you're right about that. None of the pounding, popping and other echoing noises ya get with a plastic boat, even in heavy weather. Just quiet and serenity. Even when the bow plunges into a wave on a hard beat, there's no hollow booming sound, just a muffled whoosh. At anchor, no slapping and carrying on either.
