Rudder post sleeve
A view where the new plank's going: new sister frame center, badly deteriorated frame on the right, so-so one on the left.
The new plank goes in
Screw number 487
Lots of new screws; the keel/stem scarf shows at the lower left
From inside: the new sister frame and plank show; the exhaust is a tad rusted but hammer taps indicated there's lots of metal left (besides it's way above the waterline - an inch at least!)
