Corpach Boatbuilding Company

Chico was due her 5 yearly out of the water inspection for commercial use this spring, so she was slipped at Corpach and, with her masts down, trundled up into the yard's shed.

The highly skilled and efficient workfoce set about renewal of some planking, having to peel back the copper sheathing to get access.

New planks fitted, ready for caulking and painting.

Back in the water with her hull scrubbed clean she's noticeably faster and more responsive to handle.
