Hi,

not wanting to hi-jack the Camping on a half decker thread and with a bit of interest shown, I thought I'll start a thread about the rebuild I'm currently undertaking on an early Waveney One Design.

JM has already shown some concern over my decision to add a cabin, and although not finalised, after the fun we had on Jamesia 2 I liked the idea of some form of accommodation.

The boat was given to me a few years ago and due to other commitments I was unable to do anything to her. Earlier this year she fell over and looked very sorry for herself when my enthusiasm returned a month or so ago. Due to the amount of greenery growing through the planks someone mentioned starting a restoration with a lawnmower was a novelty!

After lifting her up she was very badly out of shape, so using the line drawings I took an old aluminium mast and supported this on the stem and transom at a pre-determined height. Three cross beams with uprights carefully measured from the plans were forced across the hull, and with a jack under transom and stem she slowly came back in shape.

Most of the planking is ok, just sheerstrakes and a couple of other boards to replace, but where she fell over around 18 timbers on the starboard side and 12 on the port side need replacement. The aft end of the hog also looks suspect so this may be replaced as well.

Apart from these details just the deck, tabernacle, keelbolts, deck beams, interior and rig need sorting! Gasp

The first image, if it works, shows my proposed cabin and rig! (Please be gentle JM!) Wink

cheers
Mat

Sorry, Mat, couldn't open your file.

YBODS have cabins, in the form of Thurne One Designs!

Only an opinion but I always think it a shame when an old, local type racing boat is taken out of class. But hey, I'm a hypocrite, I did just that to a Tor Bay Mosquito some forty years ago.

Pretty lines to these untrained eyes.

I suppose she'd be similar to a Thurne class RCC when done?

You've got your topsail pole nice and tight to the mast, I note!

As a MAFI, I would say a WOD restored with a cabin is a much better bet than a pile of fire wood. Anyway,piccy looks good to my untutored eye.

2 things I'm not entirely sure about here:

The first is, why the need for a gaff and topsail rather than the good old Gunter? Unless the boom is having to go so much higher that you need to lower the CoG a bit - difficult to tell from the drawing but I would agree with JM that it appears relatively tasty notwithstanding the rig query.

The second is not so much a query but more of a statement  - surely the thread is mistitled? Should it not be........

John, it has long been acknowledged by WOD folk that the sail plan of their boats could be improved. Seems that Mat has that in hand.
