‘Fancy Free is a National 18
dinghy. She has nearly all of her hull planking in
good order, just a few repair sections on the port
side to do, but she does need a lot of re-timbering.
The timbers are small and numerous!
Update 22 November 2020
the work we were commissioned to undertake is now
complete. She has had all the steamed timbers
replaced from the after deck bulkhead, going forward
to the buoyancy tank bulkhead under the foredeck. A
total of seven sections of plank repair have been
done. A new deck, rub rails, coamings and breakwater
have been fitted. The boat has been completely
re-varnished inside and out.
