I acquired a L-36 "Nomad" several years ago, she had a major refit at Newport Shipyard before I got her, was being used locally and suffered a sinking at her slip caused by a plank to stem fracture due to a grounding. I have her in a cradle and doing the repairs to the bottom, she is strip planked and I am finding there are no butt blocks inside where the planks fit together. Have you heard of other boats with this same construction technique? I have contemplated several different repair strategies including epoxie with 8oz cloth from the water line down to the keel, but have some reluctance to this procedure. The rest of the boat looks very good and no rot anywhere. thanks for your advice in advance.
