We have recently taken on a traditional wooden sailing boat. She is a gaff rigged Brixham Sailing Trawler built in 1908. We are getting her ready in a boatyard on the Hamble so that people can sail her next year.
She is all wood! We need help with conserving her and are looking for volunteers to help with maintenance. There will be lots of painting to do, scrapping off antifoul, removing ballast, varnishing, applying wood oil etc. Lots of maintenance!
Great opportunity for someone that enjoys working with wood or on boats. And great opportunity for someone looking to start working on boats.
You will want to be a reasonably practical handy sort of person and not mind working outdoors although the boat is under cover in a lean-to so you will not get wet.
Might suit if you have been furloughed and are looking for something fun and interesting to do.
