Hi, I have just bought a final chapter for £300. I was supposed to pick it up in November but have been away until now. It needs a lot of repair. I have the whole of next week to work on it but is it TOO damaged? I am particularly worried about the rotten wood near the shroud.

Please let me know,

Many thanks  ,John

PS the website won't let me upload pictures. Will continue to try


Are you sure the wood is rotten?

I'm fixing up an old "Baggy" (3201) with a GRP hull and wooden decks which also has rotten shroud holes. Here are some pictures of the progress so far.

1st Shot: - Here is a shot of the boat as purchased, it had been left outside uncovered for several years so the decks were in poor condition
2nd Shot: - Close up of the shroud holes on the port side showing where the plywood was falling to pieces, the block underneath was also rotten, this was all cut out
3rd Shot: - In the centre of the picture a new oak block has been epoxied in prior to new deck patches being added
