so. called worker and we got busy and strengthened the supports under sole in framing… there were 3 sites of cracked wood and broken fasteners.
used one floor jack, boards and screws and epoxy to fix this mess and ta daa…. no more noises when that sole is walked on.. now for the other two cabins of squeaks….
these boats are truly built like brick sh**houses… strong and sturdy. water ingress will yes break stuff..that we are repairing now… and masts… mizzenstep only needs fasteners for the dish holding mast in place and rigging re[placed on mast itself then restep into hole and done. then we address mainmast…
and the only one we didnot photograph has been sick for over a year and supported by a bit of wood..now is repaired and sturdy again…..
life is good. formosas are easily repaired when shtf….
i love this boat.
