1950s Alcort Super Sailfish ZSA ZSA 27 Feb 18 Weight Reduction

27 Feb 18:

We pulled all the bottom nails, we can reuse a few but ordered a pound of #14 silicone bronze annular ring nails from Jamestown Distributors. There were no extra nail holes so that must have been the original bottom. We also removed some keel batten screws and will replace those.

We are pretty sure this was a kit boat from the factory, and the assembler added some extra bracing and foam when they put it together. We took out the extra lumber and will add back a better butt block for the plywood deck seam.
