Steam Yacht Thordis

Horn Timber

When we bought Thordis the skeg supporting the rudder was an extension of a steel shoe enclosing the base of the horn timber and deadwood. Consequently, over twenty years of collecting rainwater on the dockside, it had rotted out and needs complete replacement. It's another daunting job to be done but we hope to spring the planks out and remove the horn timber , shaftlog, part of the keel and all the associated parts in one go by sliding it out the back end on a trolley.
