New Sister Frames

According to the survey Roach had several broken frames. I decided that I would sister rather than replace the frames. Again, as I was working abroad at the time, I asked Jerry Hearle of Robertsons Yard to steam some new Green Oak sisters in place. It’s remarkable how quick a professional boat builder does the work. I have since sistered two more frames that were undiscovered due to the cockpit being in place, and it took me a weekend. Jerry did 12 in a day!
