Marblehead
« on: August 13, 2013, 03:22:32 PM »

Another recently acquired boat, donated by a kind local club member - A marblehead designed and built by a local chap (same guy who does the mechanical boats in Pembrokeshire) - Anyway this one has been outside for a while and will need some care to get it up an running again, its made of balsa with FG coating (and cloth I assume) the FG has broken away near the bow and the balsa is rotting so that will require some cutting out and replacing somehow - Yacht is designed to work with a swing rig so will need to find out about swing rigs! I will also need to replace all ropes as they look like they are rotting too - I see the hatches have been sealed with sail cloth, what glue would one use to glue in new covers?

Thanks

Wayne

I see the bow is also made of some sort of very soft rubber, maybe silicone sealant actually - I will look at replacing this too
