    Default Restoration Project?

    Help! I have a classic Storebro Baltic 24 built early 60's clinker construction using mahogany and oak and I cannot afford to have her restored! Has anyone any suggestions of a boatbuilding college or someone who may be interested please?

    Far better someone tells you straight. A 1960's mahogany clinker boat requiring restoration is probably not worth restoring. Mahogany is such a poor timber to build a boat from. If you are not up to a full restoration job - who is? - find something requiring a little light dusting, built of pitch pine or larch. Those long grained timbers lasted.
    Boat building colleges are very expensive and most work is common sense. Learn as you go. Ask about. Read some books. Teach yourself. That's what everyone does anyway.
