    Default Olinka started with some bleeders end up with a new nose

    We started out looking for bleeders in the bull-work , carefully removed the paint , ended up with a saw-all looking for good wood .









    here we start fitting the new bull-works



    number 37's are fun to find

    Good! What does the lizard think of it? (that's what matters, isn't it?)

    Personally: I think it's nicely, well done work, Robert (French?).
    However, isn't the capping rail right behind the (nice! S&S original design, I guess!) new stem fitting going to be better trimmed: I think the piece behind the stem should go through a slot in the capping rail, no?

    What a gorgeous cruiser-Racer!!! Can't wait to see pictures of her under sail

    I had not seen the second set of pictures!!!

    Olin on board!!! .....how long ago was he aboard? ....always feel strange when I see a picture of him

    The finished stem fitting does not look anymore like original design, though....? I like the new track too, with the name in-grooved (although surprised it does not finish with a screw at the very end...: what it all approved by Olin?)

    this shot shows the finished rail better yes it has teak back there
    the end holes on the tracks are for stops .
    I think the Olin shot was late 90's .

    OK, looks just perfect now. Bravo!

    About the last hole forward on the track being for the locking pin of the traveller (yes, I had understood that), what would have been expected was that the very last hole is for a last screw instead, so that the traveller does not tend to pull up a "loose" end. Maybe the same at the other end...?

    These genoa cars pull upwards a lot! So may I say that what I would have done would have been to have a last screw on this other side of the nice "Olinka" carving (=double screw for the end), which will of course limit the traveller to the previous locking hole, or better have the track that bit longer, but it's too late now....unless one goes for a tedious perfect welding and polishing....for which you seem to have good people though... (they better be...with the tension of the forestay relying entirely on a weld!).

    But that's just me....!

    KEEEE-RIST that is one gorgeous boat!

    Is that a double-ended anchor snubber?
    It hooks to the chain, passes through both hawse pipes, and hooks to the chain again?
    Free to see-saw back and forth at will, not actually secured to a cleat or anything?
    What's with the flags?
    The premise is WRONG, Bob!

    the last hole uses the same wood screw ,the counter sink is in the stop .

    (pardon my ignorance regarding boats of this size)

    What is the purpose of those forward mid-deck winches?

    Wayne Ettel did all the repairs when Tony Bill owned the boat


    Wayne made the new ribs and fit them . Wayne and my son did all the rivet work . Wayne is king of wood

    Don Carswell was great on the bull-works and stem .
