I'm bringing this thread back to life, as although I have commented I never fully read the earlier pages about drawing and CAD designing......
OK, so Beech is on dock at Langley Mill and is in a very sad way. Without delving into the past couple of years, the hull is very weak and the work needed runs to the following....
New stem post
New bow planks
At least two new midship planks
New chine planks
New top stern planks
Approx 40% of scarfe joints need blocks letting in.
New counter block
New cabin lining and panelling.
There have been no prospective purchasers coming forward to fund restoration so we are at the unfortunate position of carefully dismantling her. This is not something we want to do nor proud of it. Every detail is being measured and documented for the future, and where we can we will re use and repurpose all the wood, and keep the ironwork as a complete set should she get a new lease of life in the future. We will produce full drawings for our records from the measurements.
Should anyone wish to visit she will be on dock here for the next few weeks as we work our way though and document and record.
