Joshua's fresh new transom

A mild fall and winter last year made for decent outdoor work from October 2014 to the end of January 2015.  We had frequent visits from Bill who was active in the work and encouraged progress.  I personally enjoyed Bill's visits to the office, marked with humor, stories, and musings.  Andy, I and the shop built a friendship upon an acquaintance for which we are richer.  In late summer, we had the pleasure of visiting with Bill, Mary Alice and their crew/friend Dick, aboard Joshua in Doe Bay, Watmaugh Bay and then in Port Townsend for the Wooden Boat Festival, as they concluded their annual cruise in the inside passage.

Andy has captioned the pictures below with descriptions of the work.

Joshua at anchor in Watmaugh Bay


Our friend Bill's Spray replica, Joshua.  She'd been leaking from the deck



Some frame parts (futtocks) and the ends of the shelves and clamps were rotten.

Futtocks dry fit, working on the transom frame
New layers  (lift) in the taffrail, shelf/clamp assembly being re-engineered across the stern
Puzzling out the configuration of the quarter knees, clamps, shelves and transom frame

Locust quarter knees made and dry fit, ready for paint

Aft deck shelf and clamp


Shelf/clamp/ quarter knees installed, fitting covering board from below. Sprung into place.

Fitting top of transom frame under covering board. Also new frames down the sides


Bolting the frame heads to the structure

Lots of shape in the quarters













Framing and covering board all completed ready for planking







James working out the covering board on this side. He built it in two pieces to get around the frame heads and bulwarks
Planking begins, some ends were scarfed on.  Bill is having fun, as usual.  It's fir across the stern and yellow cedar on the sides. All galvanized fasteners.






Cork'er up and she'll float!



A boat on wheels?


And a good day to you sir!
