Description of Renovation:
Isomer was a substantial restoration including new stem in English oak, new timbers and 3 steel bulkheads fitted between the engine beds for extra strength when the boat is craned. Replaced rotten planking, stripped and re-varnished between the waterline and gunwale. New floor bearers throughout, new deck beams and a complete new deck in Brazilian mahogany was laid. The cabin sides and windows completely renewed along with the roof. The internal of the boat was also completely refitted throughout with bunks, storage, galley. The aft cockpit has seats on each side and the forward cockpit has seats for the helmsman and passenger. The internal sides are laid in the traditional way with a decorative bead on each plank. The floorboards are all new in American white oak. The entire boat except the roof which is painted, was varnished.
