Kalkara Boatyard has often undertaken major work where entire ship sides have had to be changed. This requires a high standard of knowledge, expertise and knowhow which the yard certainly does not lack. It has an un-rivalled reputation when it comes to classical and wooden yachts, it has undertaken tasks of removing rotten or broken planks and replacing with new ones.
Traditional methods are used and the Yard ensures that the original structure and method of plank laying is strictly adhered to. Care is taken to make certain that stresses on the hull are evenly distributed between the new planking and the existing ones.
