Progress report on wooden boat repairs

A week and a bit more I posted that a fishing boat was under repair.

Today we can see the excellence of the new structure, all built either off the boats own decks or the floating punt along side.

The wood used in Keruing, either that or Balau, the Keruing steams well but the Balau does not.

A class repair and on a boat that will by now be at least sixty years young.

Side planks next week and they will require a steam tube session to make the required bends.
