Well the new project is finally under way.
She is an old girl from 1905 and has been somewhat neglected recently.
Removal of her garboards showed the horror of her rotten/rusted steel ribs and seriously deteriorating hog...
But she has some interesting history and a quite beguiling shape; so we have 6 months to get her floating again. The interior, and maybe some exterior cosmetics will have to wait, just concentrate on structure and seaworthiness for now.
I'll be asking for advice, and posting with some details of specific stages, but the day-to-day of the restoration will be posted on her blog
