Decoration for V-Bert

When we’ve purchased our 32’ sailboat named “Lindisfarne” several years ago, it needed some work, both interior and exterior. A front sleeping compartment(known as V-Bert on sailing vessels) needed to be re-finished. Afterwards I noticed some emptiness around mirror on the back wall and carved these two decorative side pieces. It might be hard to see due to poor lighting, but these are relief carved.

Looking forward to your questions and comments, thanks!

That was a beautiful job, your use of different woods in the inlay fits right in with the sailboat. I hope the wings are always in your favor. Thanks for sharing

V-berth carvings are really nice. What kind of boat?

Daniel, we have 32’ sailboat named “Lindisfarne”. It is a Campion Pilothouse Sloop built by Beau
Industries of British Columbia, Canada in 1982.

Interesting, I haven’t seen one like that before. My boat is a Nor’sea 27. Like yours, it has a rounded stern.

Happy sailing to you.

Always nice to meet a fellow sailor. How’s the Atlantic this time of year? Do you have any pictures of the boat?

That’s a beauty, that keel must keep it very stable in any weather. I like how sharp the bow is as well.
You’ve got a ton of work done, once you finish up it’ll be one heck of a boat. Hope you’ll have it out on the water soon.

I’ll post a few other boat related projects as the weather clears up and I get a chance to finish them.

Have your say...
