Dawn Pearl back in the water

This is why wooden boats should stay in their natural element - next winter she stays in the water



    Hi Angus

    Where is that lot coming in?, is she sealing up any yet?

    Cheers

    Mostly around the seams on the turn of the bilge aft of the concrete ballast. However after 24 hours it is now down to weeping as opposed to a waterfall. I am always impressed how quickly a boat takes up. When she was lowered in the two pumps were not keeping up and she needed to be lifted a bit with the crane. Within 30 minutes the pumps were keepng pace and within 2 hours I was down to one pump.
    That's great, just so long as there wasn't a plug you left out
