35' Holman 'Rummer'
having become a little tired and suffering the results of various
modifications and a few year of reduced maintenance, underwent a
thorough refit during 2006/7. Her garboards and three strakes above
were splined to re-form the caulking seams and the ballast keel was
re-bedded on two layers of live mastic with a pith gaskit in between
and fastened with new keel bolts. Her rudder had been repaired and
modified to such an extent that she ended up with an over-sized
blade which was warped, the result being that she carried an
extremely heavy helm. We went back to basics and made a new rudder
from the original drawings.
