Indeed, great to see works started on 32, to the untrained eye, that is me!, damage looks terrible but I am sure Newsons is well upto the job of sorting it out, given thier works to 102 and the unfortunate MGB 60!. Lookforward to see more pictures as work progresses.

Wow thats a lot of work!

Are you able to reuse the planks that were removed?  

Only yield when you must, never "give up the ship," but fight on to the last "with a stiff upper lip!"

Mark,

although the wood is good it is quicker to take it off in bits and 'time is money' also with 80 odd fastenings per square foot the holes would not end up where you want them.

cheers, Clive..

Thanks Clive, saves me explaining  that  one  because trying to save  each plank  as it is taken off is not a  viable proposition   be it  us doing the job  or  the  boat  owner.  When the  nails  and screws are removed invariably they  damage the area around them resulting in repairs or filler going in to the plank which will eventually fall out resulting in more work.
So that you are all aware we will be covering all aspects of this job on our site resulting in photos going on morning and afternoon as the work is progressing.
This way you can all see the method and reason behind everything that is done and hopefully understand what it really takes to repair one of these boats properly.

Wizard your pictures show an amazing amount of work required for what initially looked like minor damage. Your level of skill makes a complicated job look simple! Hat off to you and your crew.

Now you all know why MTB102 looks so good.

Indeed, quite agree with all the above, so good to see the work underway and really looking forward as I am sure we all are, to seeing her back in the water.

just a question, hope not to silly, but was there are "membrane" between the planking? no sign of it on the pictures,was it all cut away when the outer planks were removed?
