Our new exciting project: Deilginis!
We are very proud to have Deilginis, one of the original Howth Seventeens, in our workshop for repairs and redecking. This is the oldest one-design class in the world! Click here for more on their history.
After what seemed a little like a chinese mind puzzle, we succeeded in fitting Deilginis into our workshop on her trailor. The decking is now being carefully ripped off and the hull scraped.
Working on the keelbolts is also much easier with the deck removed - so the sequence with which we go about this job is important.

Hi. Thankyou for your interest. The information about the Howth Seventeens was obtained from the Howth Yacht Club: http://www.hyc.ie/howthseventeen/default.aspDelete
As far as the practical work is concerned - we write about this using our years of experience in building and restoring wooden boats.
