Hi guys, finally getting round to refitting the bent frames on my boat. Ordered the green oak and its concetrated my mind somewhat.
Sadly on closer inspection the carvel planks are giving out at about amidships, if thats the term or at the wide bit!.
Previous owners repair was to caulk the split. The rest of the planks are close fitted with no caulking, so whats best thing to do. Dont really want to bend new frames into an off shape hull. As you can see the frame has lost its full rounded shape and probably cracked at the bend.
