Early days yet, but assembly of the base and moulds for our second St Ayles coastal rowing skiff is under way. Taking rather less time than we expected, and with the floor of Barrie’s barn/workshop proving to be closer to level than it looked, we made good progress.
(P.S. this barn is a whole lot warmer than Ian’s barn at Thurning!)
Once the base was set up, time to mount the moulds and spacers…
Having checked the base was still level, even time for Barrie to sharpen a pencil or two!
The ladies in Wells have our kit safely stored and we hope to collect it early next week, so cutting out planking and frames can begin. Meanwhile the search for good enough quality larch for laminating stems etc. is on once again.
Watch this space!
