We have looked after the ketch ‘Ursula’ for a number of years and undertaken some major repair works. She is an interesting historic vessel, build in 1953 in Sakuth, Heiligenhafen, Germany. The post below shows one particular interesting and challenging job, replacing the stem and apron, with bulwark repairs and replacement of any timbers found to require renewal.
The above photos show the process of work replacing the stem structure, and all is looking well.
