Boat repair resumed by rhoing

Boat repair resumed

I've been unable to row this beautiful shell for a couple of years because a custom part broke. Replacement parts are not available and I do not have machine shop equipment to fabricate replacements, so I've been working my way toward a “hack” with available parts.

I've removed two of the foot stretcher support tracks, which I will have to raise up a little with thin slats of material. Here are the two places I've taken off the original parts (foreground and background) and found this white, chalky residue … whatever it is. Sand. Shellac. Sand. Shellac. Maybe once more and then reattach the old parts with their modification. » Stage One, a year ago

@rhoing Very nice! I hope you know, I get a kick out of cutting up with you. Everyone is so touchy and seem to have lost their sense of humor. You don't seem to be so "stuffy" about things. So please don't be offended by my comments. Deal?
