Remember this stuff?



It kept the rot out of the plywood for ~50 years so I thought I'd go with it again.

Hey Friends,

I was making great progress on the old gal and had her about 90% done, looking at an October 9 launch date on Henry's Fork. But... On August 9 I herniated a disc while backpacking and fishing in the Sawtooths. It was the third time on the same disc and normally it just gets better in a couple weeks. Not this time. It was definitely the most pain I have ever been in. I could not sit or lie down for 6 weeks. I resorted to sleeping on my back on the floor with my feet and legs in a chair. I'd wake up at 3:30 AM so that I could be standing by 6:30. Finally I had back surgery 3 weeks ago today. So, sadly the old girl has to wait at least a few more weeks before I can give her attention.

Hate to hear that Carl. As a veteran of back surgery, I can literally feel your pain. Praying for your full recovery!

Carl, I hope you got the relief you were looking for. Stay off the oars for awhile.

Carl I'm sorry to hear about your back. Hope you get to feeling better. I want to see all that varnish in the sunshine!

Hello Friends. Just thought I'd post an update in case anyone is still interested in this project. In my last post I said that I had just had back surgery and it would probably be a few weeks before I could work on the boat again. Well, here it is over a year since I herniated the disc and I just got back to work on her about two weeks ago. It's been a long, painful road but I am finally able to at least lead some sort of a normal life again. Anyway, enough of all that.

The past few nights and weekends have actually been pretty productive. I was able to get the gunnels on, a knee brace made, restored the original front seat, and a few other odds and ends. But a big breakthrough is that I have actually made enough progress on hull repairs that I was able to start putting a finish on the inside of the hull. I decided on an oiled finish because it is a good choice for the arid environment where I live. Man, this old wood is so dry. In the following pics I have applied three coats of 50/50 boiled linseed oil and turpentine and so far it has just sucked into the wood within minutes. Other than turning it dark, there is no indication that there is any kind of finish on it at all. It just feels like dry wood. The rule of thumb, as i understand it, for an oil finish is once a day for a week, once a week for a month, once a month for year, and once a year thereafter. So that is what I am going to try.

The gunnels and frames are varnished and I am going to leave the transom the way it is (with remnants of all the colors that this boat has been over the years) as a nod to its history.

Looking good. Glad you are back in action. Those eggs in the background of your pics have to be getting pretty rotten by now.

Looks great! I wish I'd of heard that oil saying. I just pushed the boat out in the sun for a few hours and let it get real warm then I'd oil it. After a few of those sessions it started to stay oiled. Don't forget about your chine caps!
