Hi

Ok I now understand why they cant be reused! Is the planking mahogany? I think the membrane was "Seamflex" oiled cotton fabric but thats assuming all boats of this type used the same materials.

The repair techniques on MASB 32 are obviously very impressive so how many of you would be interested in a visit to Newsons Yard in the very near future, ie.while 32 is stripped out? This would include a visit to MTB102 which lies afloat just outside the shed. Contact me or The Wizard.

Richard.

to answer the questions above, yes the planking is mahogany but some of what has been removed was iroko.Yes there was a cloth between the two layers which due to what is going on has been removed so we can see the inner planking.
This will be replaced with Calico which is an un-bleached cotton cloth which will be soaked in a mix of Linseed oil and varnish when in place.

oh well, no takers for a visit, for those interested the chine timber is now in and the damaged frame is being replaced, mahogany boards should be with us tomorrow so should be able to start putting things back in.

Sorry to see no takers for a visit, was there myself a while back and saw MTB 102 high and dry. Great to see and hear progress on MASB 32, another great vessel to "add" to the others like 102 and Medusa, Gay Archer, Velo 2, Asco, what a site that would be altogether!.

me again, just looking at the shots of the new chine plank, is it glued and screwed in?,  I find this all fascinating, really shows what can be done by people with the skills, now the slip is not quite 115' is it so shall we say a larger vessel of WW2 vintage in need of replication would not fit, pity, but hope goes on!.

So all you armchair restorers, with one or two exceptions. Here was an offer to see the real thing in progress in a working boatyard specialising in the type of vessel you all dream about and the chance to crawl over the mother of the WW2 short boats as well. What is wrong with you? Are you afraid the Press Gang will get you and you will be stuck on one of these vessels forever or that the Pirates will empty your wallets? Come on, extract digets and have a day out. You might even enjoy the experience. Contact The Wizard or myself and all will be arranged. If you already get your hands dirty like the guys on 102 this does not apply to you , but we would still like to see you here.

perhaps the dream is better than the reality? it is definitely cheaper, thing is the invite is only to look, see, touch and learn, not buy, mind you.....

Just been onto the Newsons site, "drooling" over the stack of mahogany planks, is it recycled material? I thought that you could not get it imported now. Really impressive stuff, in paralel with Medusa, one day together on the water perhaps? plus 102, Gay Archer, Asco....now there's a thought.

Hi Guys, I'm defiantly up for a visit but Ive been trying to squeeze the last few decent sailing days out of our so called Summer!

I would love to come up say 2nd week in November, are weekend visits possible?

Thanks
