Help!! 3rd time on water, water coming in from plank seams, any ideas of how to resolve this?


I suggest you post this on the discussion pages where you will get some helpful comments as far more people will look at it.  The planks are glued but at this age they will be aerolite or cascamite either way both deteriorate with age.  Gently lever the joint apart.   Clean out the old glue with a hacksaw blade getting as far as you can and then re glue with epoxy.  That is the short answer as clamping it all up whilst the epoxy sets can be a challenge but those more qualified than I am will be able to give you more help.


Restored after more than 25 years of neglect! Now sailed at Ulley Sailing Club, Rotherham,
