Its all happening in New Zealand

I received an email from Mike Mahoney who is the driver behind the St Ayles skiffs in New Zealand.

He tells me that Kit  5 was sent to Muchison where Alex Hislop, a shipwright with a long association with Scottish craft, will be coordinating the Build.

Kit 6 came out of the Tawera mould and Kit 7 is now on the mould.

This is a picture of Tawera from Kit 2 that Steve, Manfred, Gary and I rowed at the Australian Wooden Boat Show this year.

Mike has evidently got a nice design for oars that I have asked him for.
