JohnRPollard Wow!

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.

CharlieCobra 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.

CharlieCobra 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.

artbyjody 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...

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.

The house front.

Here are some shots of bulkhead attachment points.

A hollow header used for a wire run.

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.

Tank bed.

Rot on the lower hanging locker bulkhead from the water.

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.
