As owner of the Temptress – a 1962 Wooden Dutch Yacht (Ketch) the time came to do a hull inspection and repair for insurance purposes. As wood boats goes, the wear and tear sometimes requires attention, and in our case there was extensive repair work to be done.
Any wooden boat owner knows how hard it is to find a qualified “shipwright”. I was fortunate enough to locate Bob Cunningham, who had recently relocated to the northwest. We are most fortunate to have such a master “shipwright” living and available here in the northwest.
The scope of the work required, comprised of the entire aft cabin being replaced, deck beams, replacing teak deck surrounding the entire cabin and adding 10 feet onto the mizzen mast. The finish work Mr. Cunningham did on the Temptress is as good as any work that any of us has seen. I have included a couple of pictures of the interior finished work for your review.
I highly recommend Mr. Cunningham and ask that you pass this information on to anyone in your club in need of wood work or boat building. His contact information is Bob Cunningham 360-385-9824.
