  • Hello folks, Still making progress on Black Pearl here in Maine. I've got toe rails glued up about 1.5"x 2" in 30 ft long of white oak. I've got a dilemma about attachment, and I'm sure I'm over-thinking this. The old toe rail was bolted through the plywood with only washers behind.

  • Hi, I'm making progress on the Black Pearl, a 1967 Atkin Little Maid of Kent schooner. I'm looking for ideas for the toe rail and guard rail.
