There’s a hole in my skiffie, dear…

Hoi Larntan, damaged in transit across London on the way back from the Great River Race, now undergoing remedial surgery.

Well mend it, dear…

First stage of tidying up…

All six edges of planks on the boat had to be scarfed (angle cut on the edges) and then three suitable lengths of new plywood cut to fit (also scarfed at both ends) before glueing and clamping, one plank at a time. Third one going on tomorrow, then all the cleaning up, re-shaping and finally painting. Hopefully back in action late next week – thanks to Barrie’s swift efforts.

First plank in place…

Will keep you posted.
