Projects: Wooden boat repair – helping the boat to save herself
John Rousemaniere once said “the goal is not to sail the boat, but rather to help the boat sail herself”. This is exactly what Mat Gravener has done, performing a wooden boat repair and restoration on his 1940’s Broads Cruising Yacht the ‘Lady Perfect 9’ to her eloquently named former self.
Using WEST SYSTEM® Epoxy, Mat has shown that renovating a cruising yacht, albeit one in her seventies, can be achieved. And, more importantly, achieved to an exceptionally high standard.
