Shrimp Boat Renovation

Last year a friend and local shrimper in Morecambe Bay located an old shell of a shrimp boat near Glasson Dock in Lancashire. The boat is of the old wide bottom shallow beam type, in the main constructed from larch. It was in bad state of repair with rotten timbers and beams, broken engine and other non functioning mechanical parts.

The boat was relocated to his work yard for renovation to begin. Larch trees that we had felled locally were cut on our Wood-Mizer saw mill were used to replace the rotten timbers and beams. The work is ongoing with the engine, gearbox and shaft to be fitted, decking to be milled out of larch again, and the timbers resealed.

I will update this feed when the project progresses.
