Hi.Thanks for the reply,I had it all reinstated a 18 months ago and it still seem good but i am being advised to take it off as it will act like a water trap that will make the wood rot quicker?which dont make much sense to me as the wood will still be in the water,Thanks for your advice,i think that i will leave it on.Rick.

Ricky
I guess a summary...
The copper in contact will slow any rot it is in contact with.
In salt water it will provide anti-fouling and work protection. The salt water seaping through will also not be good for fungus and can be a beneficial preservative.
the copper may cause corrosion of disimilar metals which are in contact or bonded to it, when in salt water.
If in fresh water then the copper will tend to act as a barrier to salt water coming in and when lifted out will tend to hold fresh water (rain water) in and slow the drying process.
The danger is retaining fresh water in the boat at a moderate level, where fungus has enough fresh water to grow, but can still breath. This is where retained rain and fresh water is most serious.
Copper napthanate was a solution which BPBCo painted on the hull timbers (at least on th earlier boats anyway) to soak in and provide a degree of protection, but will have long since washed out and become ineffective.
...therefore guard against the fresh water retention and then your worries should be reduced.
Good luck and enjoy her!
Andy

Hi Ricky, a different question - I was wondering how the copper sheathing went and also were you got the materials? I am looking at replacing the copper stripped from the hull of Caprella a 60ft Pinnace, as it appears to have kept the hull in very good condition over the years, but wanted to get the correct materials and fitting method as it has the potential to cause problems if not done correctly and advice on this is hard to get. Many thanks

You should ask the question about copper sheathing on the classicboat magazine forum or woodenboat.  Perhaps log onto the motorboat forum at ybw.com and seek out Colin Scott, he's got a Silver with copper sheathing and will know everything on the subject.
Napier Lion engine wanted.

Thanks, just signed up to the Classic Boat forum yesterday, will give that a go and also try and contact Colin Scott, any first hand practical experience of the best methods and pitfalls will be a huge help, and bearing in mind the cost and time involved I don't want to get it wrong!

Hi Rikky,

I just wanted to know whether you still owned 'Pembroke Puffin' ST440, and whether she had been re-fitted to it's former glory (if that was the intention?)

It would be great to see a recent photo of how she looks now.

My brother, Stevie, exchanged posts with you in 2011 to confirm whether it was the boat our father owned for a number of years from 1974. I believe that is indeed the case. I spent quite a bit of time on her through the years and, as I say, it would be good to see how she looks now.

Kind regards
