Back on the classic yacht repairs

Starting work on the classic yacht garboard planks and its shaft log replacement

Set up the mobile workshop in the back of my large van which is ideal for doing small repair on the road and away from the workshop

Starting to fit the first of the two garboard planks that renewing because of the rotten and damaged shaft log and its rusted away fixings

The fitting is taking some time as there are many different angles to shape the plank to fit the gap between the hog and the second plank on the hull.

Major leak problem a piece of missing hog, this gap was filled with sealant before, this time it will have a new piece fitted to ensure there is no leak in this area in the future.
