The Secret to Wooden Boat Maintenance

Is to keep a garage and a couple of girls with a sandpaper fetish handy at all times!

Hopefully we'll have the Ent back on the water for the start of the Spring series a week on Sunday, but it's looking dodgy.

The price of sailing her through the winter instead of laying her up and giving her a little TLC. She was fine until the recent brief freeze, but the ice has caused her varnish to lift badly just in time for the start of the season.

Hopefully a little sacrifice now will give us a full year's play to come however. RYA Dinghy Show this weekend so there wouldn't have been any sailing anyway.
