Lifting the foredeck ….

July 24, 2018

Volunteers have commenced removing the caulking from the foredeck planks. This has enabled the planks to be lifted and the deck beams to be inspected. As can be seem in the photos there needs to be some repairs done to the beams. Water has leaked below the deck and damaged some areas of the beams. The deck planks need to be lifted without damage if possible as they will be used to replank the deck after all repairs have been completed. The holes have been drilled around the dumps to allow the planks to be lifted. These holes will be glued and dowelled and the spikes and dumps left in the beams will be removed and the holes again glued and dowelled.
