Belle Isle by Jeremy Goldstein, Sandusky, Ohio

13 November, 2009

During the past year I really had not put any time into the Belle Isle. About a month ago we decided to work on it full time to completion at this point.

As I had mentioned last year I purchased the started project from a gentleman in Cleveland, Ohio who had begun the build at his house. Unfortunately the quality of his joinery was poor. This left us no choice but to replace all the battens, shear clamp, stem, knee, and rework the transom frame work along with cleaning and scraping all of the globs of random epoxy stuck to the frame work.

This week we have begun planking the boat up.
