Progress on 1902 West Cork Daysailor


Here’s more photos of the West Cork daysailor that I’ve been working off and on over the last couple of months.  The decks are now off and work is beginning on removing the old floors and frames.


The new frames are now being steamed into place and will be held to the planking with temporary fastenings.


This is the start of making the new floors. I’ve increased the molding on these a little to increase their stiffness. The ones I removed had been curved on the top, I presume to increase headroom in the cabin, it made them rather flexible and created a weakness in the ends.

That’s all for now if you’d like to see more photos I’ll be updating the blog over the coming months. Or if you’re in the West Cork region this weekend (21-22) the Glandore Classic boat summer school is on and I’ll be giving a talk about progress so far. Hope to see you there.

If you’d like to have your own boat restored, repaired or custom built for you don’t hesitate to contact me, Tiernan Roe, +353 861586937 or use the contact page.
