Very rotten Osprey please help

Post by Paul k » Fri Feb 22, 2008 10:42 pm

I have just aquired a rather old and rather rotten osprey. She is currently in my garage with all the rotten timber removed (see pictures). Initaly i thought it was jus the ply either side of the central timber in which case i would have scarfed a new section of ply in, however, as the pictures show the actual keel band had rotted through.

What is the best way to repair the keel band? How do i do this and what is the best way to go about it? I am a reasonably practical person and my brother is a boat builder (albeit for fibre glass gin palaces) so i have access to tools and a reasonably competant person.

All responses are greatfuly received.

Regards

Paul
