    Default A new workshop for J-Star Boat Services

    At the beginning of August I was able to get new premises to expand my business. Now I am hard at work clearing out the workshop of the last tenant and putting new stamp on the workshop. it is going to take sometime however we will get there and the major work on turning boats around and back on the water will begin in earnest.

    Hi,

    My Yacht is still at Fox's. However, I have not worked for Fox's since 2000.

    Regards
    Simon

    The main problem is where to start with cleaning the old things you do not need any more



    Got to start somewhere it might as well be the shelves and then that will make room on the floor for boats and the other equipment like bandsaws, table saws and pillar drills and other heavy equipment.







    Two new larch boards to repair the clinker dinghy will have just got in for repair





    An old GRP dinghy will have got in to restore









    The clinker dinghy which needs two new planks

    The top sheer strake back in position ready to start putting the new planking back on the dinghy

    After taking off the broken and split planks, it is now time to start the rebuilding of the side of the dinghy. First put back on the sheer strake plank so there is guide to work to when putting the planks back in position



    First dry fitting of the first of the planks that need renewing







    Got my every faithful bandsaw back up and running and in position to use it to cut long lengths of planking







    The thicknesser using the tablesaw as a base until I get round to m,aking its own stand to sit on and set up in the workshop

    The GRP works dinghy getting a new transom pad dry fitted to strengthen up the transom to put a larger outboard on for towing boats around





    Inside view of the size of the plywood transom pad and just got to fix in position with free-fix and then glass over with several layers of CSM and resin to give it a good strong tyransom


    The Shetland Family 4 getting new cabin side linings glued in position
