Stern repairs ….

July 8, 2017


The shipwrights have marked out the stern of the ship with datum points to correctly align the counter at the stern, the sheer and camber of the decking. The small white rectangles of plywood and the long strips of timber set out the required heights etc for the correct laying of the new carlings, deck and deck house alignment.   The carlings, fore-and-aft deck timbers set between the deck beams, were in need of replacing. The deterioration of the carlings over the years had caused the deck to change shape ( the camber and sheer were not correct ). The two carlings are port and starboard of the Master’s cabin which they supported. As the camber of the deck was not correct the Master’s cabin leaked and had some degree of rot in the interior timbers and panelling.
