    Default Replacement GIS build instructions

    Hi folks!

    Seven years ago I purchased plans for the Goat Island Skiff and I actually built the dang thing (named it Goats Have No Manners). Eventually, I had to give the boat to a friend because I was moving out of the country. In 2019 I returned, and have just recovered the Goat. Unfortunately, my friend didn't use it at all and while it was well-stored, there was some damage from sitting for four years (see attached photo). I need to rebuild some pieces, but I no longer have the instructions.



    I am hoping, dear reader, that you can email me the GIS instructions so that I can repair or rebuild the yard, the tiller, the centerboard and rudder.

    Thanks for any help you can provide, and I'll try to keep the forum updated as I sail GHNM again!

    I just sent Michael Storer a message alerting him to this thread, maybe he can help you.

    It is never a problem. Email me please or drop into the facebook group for the Goat.

    My email contact is in the left column of Plywood Boat Plans - Build a beautiful fast light boat - Storer Boat Plans - or if looking at the mobile site down with the list of agents under the article.

    The Goat group on facebook is Goat Island Skiff Public Group | Facebook

    Best wishes
    Michael

    The boat survived years of sitting with pretty minimal damage. The varnish and epoxy coating on the transom was mostly ruined by exposure, but that's easily addressed. The most significant damage seems to be this potential rot of one runner. If I remember right, I used oak due to its density and abrasion resistance, but it is a rot-prone wood.

    Anyway, your thoughts about how to proceed here will be appreciated.

    FWIW I'd plane the runner off until all the rot has been removed and you have clean wood, then skarf a new piece of runner on top using thickened epoxy as the glue and then epoxy coat (maybe glass over) and paint. If the rot affects most of the runner, plane the whole bally thing off and replace - you don't want any rot left, although fresh epoxy will fill and stabilise some rot, it is a heavy solution.
    Cheers
