Good afternoon all,

I am currently rebuilding maybe the oldest Helms 25 on the board (72--Hull # 22) and am making progress. Will post pics and questions as they arise.

First pics: How she was

Welcome! These must be the pics you told me about. You did a great job. What did you use to replace the end grain balsa core? Can you tell what sealer was used for the hull to deck joint? I never had my bumper rail off to inspect the lap joint. Glad to see the bolts used for mechanical fastening the deck.
Was that a roll & tip job using an interlux product?

I found a place to buy end grain balsa sheets for about $15 a piece (2'x3') [I]needed three to complete the bow. ( Have 4 left which I think I will eventually need for the cabin roof)

I can post more pics if you need

As for the paint, I chose a 2 part tractor enamel that I sprayed with a air sprayer.
