In boats with typical bilge frames, breakage in these areas are much more easily reinforced by the Cutts’s Method than in any other way. Cords are inlaid externally so as to be undetectable when finished. Literally hundreds of thousands of pounds of transverse tensile strength may be added to old boats making them ready for useful service once again.
BUTT BLOCKS & SEAMS
The Cutts Method has devised a unique way to eliminate leaky butts and seams in older wood boats. Butt blocks are replaced through a special innovative “double planking” process. This, in combination with Kevlar Cording, produces a hull improvement that is seamless and water tight.
Many other innovative ways to save and actually improve older boats are available at the CUTTS & CASE boatyard. From boat building to cabinet making; fabricating to finishing - no job is impossible.
