    I have created replacement covers using left over balsa core sandwiched to new plywood. the idea was to create strong, light panels, however they turned out to be just as heavy once they were glassed

    On the outside of the of the hull/ deck joint I removed some of the crumbling adhesive and filled the gap with thickened epoxy the entire way around the boat

    on the inside, i began to reinforce the hull/ deck joint

    using west systems epoxy products and .25 inch end grain balsa mat, I re-cored the entire deck. As this is my first boat, and I have never attempted anything like this before, it was a large undertaking for me, but the deck is beginning to look better.

    facing aft, I have removed the skin where possible and was able to sand down and reuse portions. Once the old material was removed and sanded down, I began the process of fairing the deck to prepare for recoring

    hello everyone, my name is Ian. I am posting pictures of my refit, but I have no idea how to use forums! I thought I included descriptions, but there don’t appear to be any.

    Hi Ian, I’ll try to find out where your description went. I’m on my phone right now, so, I can’t do anything, but I’ll give ot a look very soon. If it’s recoverable, I’ll do it :scratch:

    Hi Ian,

    so I recovered all the text you wrote in pictures descriptions. :yahoo:

    For you to know, you just have to type you text in between the pictures. The description you can set in the picture upload form, is juste there for SEO (search engine optimization) and accessibility. It’s not ment to be displayed.

    Now for the most important : welcome aboard ;-) thank you so much for sharing! You’ve done a fantastic job on your boat ! :good:

    Bravo !

    Oh, and where are you from ?

    thank you very much for taking the time to correct my mistakes!  I live in Maryland, USA, and the boat is on the hard in tilghman island, Maryland, on the eastern shore of the chesapeake bay.

    I am constantly impressed by the quality of the forum, as well as the genuine kindness and depth of knowledge of the people here.

    I have many pictures to add of the progress, and will be looking forward to hearing any advice that may be offered.

    thank you all for your time and your help!

    Maryland USA ? Wow !

    I’m quite curious to know if this boat was built in France then crossed the Atlantic by any mean or if there were some Edel factories in America ? It looks like there was an Edel Canada subsidiary, but I never got any confirmation nor informations on this… If you have any knowledge on the subject, i’d love to know more :scratch:

    You’re very welcome to post some pictures of your navigation area as well, this would be awesome ! :yahoo:

    Good luck for the refit, please share your progress with us ! :mail:

    From what I have been told from the previous owner, this boat was built under the Canadian subsidiary, in 1980.  I have seen a handful for sale within the states, but I’m not sure about the numbers of boats actually produced there.

    I found some information regarding the Canadian production group from an older website.   I will post the screenshots.

    The area I plan on sailing initially is within the confines of the chesapeake bay, I live on the Tred Avon River.   I will post a couple of pictures of the river and the opening of it into the greater bay area.   I also will include a translated description from wikipedia about the area in general.
