Repairing the pretty 11 footer

Well, after a break of a few days I have begun to make and fit the new sapele floors. I was hoping that I could use the old floors as templates for the new ones. Unfortunately the old floors just are not up to template standard and so I have scribed these from scratch. It is an immensely satisfying feeling, taking a rough sawn piece of timber, planing it square and then cutting, scribing, fitting, shaping and gluing it into place. Yep, its a mighty fine thing to do.

  1. It is a fine boat. Really quite convenient and comfortable for a few persons. And since it’s not much bigger so its repair and maintenance too is easy.
