DEBEN 4 TONNER : LEADING WIND : progress report



Birdham Pool Marina hosts their annual classic boat festival 2018


Devoid of her interior, and badly degraded Floor Timbers Leading Wind is ready for some new oak replacements.



It’s hard to believe the Birdham Pool Marina CLASSIC BOAT FESTIVAL was a over a week ago.

Tucked away from the glare of publicity, in her new home, in Tim Gilmore’s workshop, Deben 4 Tonner, “Leading Wind” has begun her epic restoration  – hopefully resulting in an appearance at next years Classic Boat Festival – this time IN THE WATER and dressed overall, like those in my photograph (above) of the 2018 festival.


“Leading Wind’s” old knee is cut back and cleaned up.

Below : the stem has been cut back further and a replacement laminated stem and floors have been dry fitted. 22.9.18
