21/02/2024.                    1915. George Carette 20" Gunboat.                   Repair and Restoration.

This boat was was split from the gunwale to keel at the bow, missing most of the bits with a busted motor and a few rust holes through the hull. The water ingress was likely due to the fact that the deck was only soldered to the hull in four half inch points this was how she left the factory in 1915. No doubt a hundred years of wet hands clutching the hull combined with adverse sea conditions contributed to her demise. She's now fully soldered and in perfect working order.
