Re-using hull planks ….

Many hull planks are able to be repaired and used again but not as planks. The sound timber has all metal removed and the holes drilled out. A hardwood dowel is glued in each hole with the excess glue and dowel then removed. The plank is then sanded ready for priming. This timber can then be reused, generally in the interior of the ship. By spending the time and effort in repairing these planks much of the 114 year old timbers are being saved.
