Got the steam box fired up last night. The cat boat upside down in the background badly needed a new keel as well as centerboard trunk. Actually, truth be told, it needs to be re-framed, but the problem is that it's iron fastened, and trying to pull them is virtually impossible, and even if you did, there's really no room for a fresh fastening. ......Any idea's?
It's a beautiful boat, Crosby built,that was originally on display at the '39 worlds fair in NYC and eventually made it's way to the West Coast.
Other action includes a new skiff way in the back and a couple canoes not seen in this pic.
