Oh Joy Resto 02/07/10

Took a drive up to Oh Joy before the game since I haven't been since last weekend. I scraped some paint aft and applied more stripper. While I was there, I made up another foredeck beam. Then I started checking them for curvature and uniform height across the entire foredeck. I used a very square floor board to measure.



and



They look really close, within 1/16" and dead nuts on three of the four so far.



I then took a look at the Port side deck beams.



A couple of them were a touch too tall and needed some passes on the belt sander which is sitting in the V-Berth at the moment. Another one will need to be redone because it's too short in height by about 1/4".

I've tried and spectacularly failed at restoring a couple of old timber boats but both times with boat in the water other than on specific occasions.

It must make a world of difference doing the job in a shed.

As always, thanks for the update CC. Keep up the good work.
