Fruitful September 2016

The work we are currently undertaking on Fruitful are: rebuilding of some hull planks, partial rebuilding of the deck structure and of planking of the deck, rebuilding of the timberheads and of new superstructures.

We are using traditional techniques and where necessary, more up-to-date products in order to preserve timber, minimising replacements and future problems.

You can follow the boat building activities by having a look at the weekly updates on our Facebook page or at our Boat Building Picture Album.

You can also find some interesting videos and time-lapse recordings on our Youtube Channel.
