Previous Project

Hinkley Sou'wester 34

New keel and deadwood for Hinkley Sou'wester34 (right of center in the picture).



Removing the ballast was interesting.




The stock for the new keel went through its transformation and has been installed.

A number of frames had lost all the strength in their lower ends so they were repaired.



Deadwood had to be cut out and installed along with the ballast and graving piece ahead of the ballast.

When the planks are replaced or made new and caulked, she will be ready for more sea time.
