Coming together, slowly…

The gunwales/inwales are on and shaped. The thwarts are being fitted. Chris is doing a superb job with bottom boards and stretchers etc. – one dry fit and now back to his workshop for finishing. There is even talk of cleaning up and the word “paint” has been mentioned.

The oars are looking so good. 

No illusions as to how much is left to do, but we are pressing on.
