There was only one small area suspected of having worm damage so planks were removed one by one until no further damage was seen.
New Celery Top slabs were cut by a local saw miller and then shaped into planks by the shipwright. The new planks were fitted, jointed, caulked and sealed. All joints and butts were caulked and sealed. Oakum was used for all caulking.
The false keel was removed at the bow but the rest was not accessible so temporary sacrificial planks were installed along both sides of the keel.
