Boats, like people, grow old and occasionally need repair. The NBBW has worked on a variety of small and large boats to restore them so they can continue a useful and beautiful life.
The classic cruiser Wanda needed several ribs replaced and of course that also means removing and replacing the planks in the affected area. She is seen here up on the marine railway at Bayside Boatworks, just across from NBBW.
On the right we see it is both a big boat and a big job. We have almost finished installing kerfed sister frames to take over the function of the damaged ones.
Below, and a week later, planks have been installed. Screw holes need to be plugged, seams between planks caulked, and then the hull painted. In a few days it will go back into the water.
