23 Jun We’ve been busy – sanding transoms, replacing floor boards, welding hulls, fixing joints and polishing bows!
We have been a bit too busy to post many updates lately, so we thought we’d give you a taste of the work, that we do week in, week out. We sometimes get asked how we know so much about the intricacies of pretty much every type of sailing dinghy and this is why! It’s because we work on them and get to know what the common issues are with each.
So here is some of our recent work
GRP with rotten transom
The wood in the middle of the transom lay up on this GRP Mirror was completely rotten, so we made a new one.
New floor for Wayfarer
We felt honoured to make new wooden floorboards for Jeremy Warren’s Wayfarer, in which he sails amazing long distance passages, including Penzance to the Scilly Isles and Thurso to the Shetland Islands!
Four boats from Cardiff Bay YC needed just some minor welding to get them shipshape and sailing again.
Run of the mill work – simple for us!
Repair to Solo side deck cracking
Repair to Solution bow
Refurbish of 2000 to get it ready to sell
Repair of K6 hull gash
Repair of Laser deck to hull joint
And in case you were wondering, yes we do find time to sail ourselves, but what is Pete doing in a 200 on the Enterprise Masters start line?! Answers on a postcard please . . .
