Typical of old Redwings is the failure of glue joints in the deck beams, carlings and other deck/framing joints and here 'Pegasus' has been meticulously re-glued. Her owner is a professional bespoke wooden furniture maker and the quality of his workmanship is top-notch. He was at the re-ribbing stage here and I have been lending a hand to fasten new frames. Ash has been used here but being a bit dry before steaming necessitated a prolonged soaking in the pond before going into the steamer.
|New ribs going in - doing this without the deck makes the job a whole lot easier!|
|She needs a complete strip and re-varnish job.|
|New main sheet horse and transom drains now cut.|
