After opening the garboard, Jeff pointed out that 16 of the forward frames were rotted. Since we have the miracle goop (epoxy) frame ends are being scarfed in using a ceiling clamp improvised by JHaroldLLC. The owner of this lovely vessel, Fritz Dietel, has been coming by to work on her also. A curtain was hung around the hull to keep in the moisture supplied by a humidifier. Since it has gotten colder, the heat is on in the shop. Nice for people, not so for wooden boats.
