Dowager Restoration

CWBW HOME            DOWAGER HOME

   

 

In order to get to the bottom of things the Dowager's cabin top was lifted off and placed over her aft cabin.

   

 

The engine was then removed to gain access to floors and frames beneath.

   

 

 

Several planks were removed to allow for inspection of the stem and frames.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Fastenings of the Dowager consist of a combination of copper rivets and galvanized screws. The rivets were fine but the galvanized screws had corroded causing the white oak frames surrounding them to deteriorate.
