Planked in 1 1/8” larch on sawn oak frames.  Originally fastened in iron dump nails, now 90% refastened in stainless steel screws.

Oak backbone with external iron ballast keel added at some point.  Sawn oak floors.

Large open cockpit with laid pine foredeck and small aft deck.

New Stanchions and bulwarks in Iroko.

Tiller steering on transom hung rudder.
