Tips from A Shipwright: A Plan for a 12 1/2

Master Shipwright and sage video tipster, Louis Sauzedde, has his work cut out for him with this sweet little Herreshoff 12 1/2. She was washed up on the rocks and has some pretty serious damage that will require Lou’s expert work on her stem, planks, frames and bulkheads. So yeah, pretty much most of the boat needs some Lou love.

But he is not daunted by the task and in this video he goes over what his plan of attack is and how important it is to take the boat apart in pieces to retain the hull shape that makes it such a beauty and a pleasure to sail.  This little boat is lucky to be “alive” and is even luckier to have landed in Lou’s capable shop.
