Berthon's - traditional skills update

8 December 2010

Berthon's Boat Company is refitting yacht Rowena.

  The tops of the beams on have been levelled between the beam shelf inboard and the shear strake (top hull plank) outboard, using a ‘filled’ epoxy as the levels were out of true.

This also seals and consolidates the top of the timber and remaining bare timber has been epoxy coated. The beams and frames have been given a fresh coat of white paint whilst access is easy.
