Carvel yacht Repair work

This month We have been carrying out a number of repairs to a beautiful 1960s Camper and Nicholson racing yacht.  She is carvel planked, mahogany on oak.

The work has involved repairs to her damaged stem and apron (see photo above), replacing a handrail, repairing localised rot to planking, making a new cockpit locker lid and making an instrument cabinet.

The left hand photo shows the impact damage to the stem and the right hand the finished replacement stem with silicon bronze bolts postioned and ready for tightening.
