A Winter's Worth of Work

A busy winter ahead for the crew at Stevens Boatworks.

The bright-hulled bluenose sloop on the left is in for repairs to cracked frames.

The blue-hulled McVay bluenose sloop is in for a general restoration; refinishing, hull coating, cock pit deck repairs, mast repair and rigging overhaul.

The J-24 just visible on the right suffers from water soaked balsa core in the deck. The restoration has started with a portion of the deck cut open and sodden core removed. Approximately 40% of the deck core will be replaced.

Swinging from the rafters is a real beauty of a 10 ft. row boat; finished and waiting on client pick-up.

Under the tarp on the right is a wooden 11 ft. lapstrake row boat complete and waiting on final finishing, paint and varnish. We will be looking for an owner for this fine little boat in the near future.

Stand by for a progress report.
