To be honest I am treating her with real kid gloves.
She is well wrapped up on a shelf out of the way while the cold damp weather is here.
As the wood is so old and dry I will only work on her during the good summer months until she is fully sealed.
The last thing I want after all the work on the hull is to get some moisture in and swell the planks.
Yes I might be going OTT but I would rather be safe than sorry.
I have never worked on or know anyone that has worked on a wooden hull of this quality, but age.
As soon as I can she will be unwrapped and left for a few days to fully acclimatise, then start on her again.
To be honest not that much to do on the hull, once she is completed up to deck level then the repairs and completion to the superstructure can begin.
