Pocock Classic Cedar Singles
Hoh On the Rocks

The Hoh was badly damaged August 18, 2004 when its crew beached it in rough weather. At least no one had to swim and the Hoh did not break in half.

Boat builder, Steve Chapin, begins the repair. He intends one steam-bent scarf.

The single patch turned out to be more difficult than expected, reported Steve, because it had to curve longitudinally too. Might have been easier to make a three or four piece patch as was done (by Frank?) in the bow. Now the patch is finished. All it needs is gossamer cloth and varnish.
