I have been slowly working on restoration of a 1915 (best guess) Morris. Someone had put fiberglass in years past and it had already been removed when I acquired it. But the resin remained and I have way too many hours into removing it from the planking and gap between the planks. At last that project is nearly complete. Which brings me to the outwales. They appear to have been left intack when the hull was fiberglassed - the glass was simply put up to the bottom of the outwales. Removing the outwales has proven difficult. With lots of patience and gently prying I have pulled one outwale about 1/2 way off. It is held on by steel nails which go through the inwale and rib and into the D shaped outwale. There are screws added on either side of a thwart and the seats. Along side the decks the nails went through the outwale and into the deck. In most cases I have pulled the outwale far enough out to cut the nail. In some cases the nail came out of the outwale. Has anyone done this aspect of a Morris restoration? My concern at this point is removing the remaining part of the nails that are in the gunwales and rib. Should I try to remove them or just work around them? Also, when reinstalling the outwale, what have other members done? I am inclined to use then screws to make future maintenance easier, but that is not how Morris did it. Thoughts?
