As always, steaming timber feels like magic - exciting, inspiring. The boat really does feel like a boat now - strong and sturdy.
One just can't stop looking at it...

As part of a complete restoration of a 1969 Borensen Built Dragon, we laid this solid cedar swept deck. The advantage of using cedar is that it is very light. The disadvantage is that it is quite soft - so discipline is required in what shoes are allowed on board.
The cedar was relatively easy to bend and work with.
