Boat #1 turned over

It was a big night for the St Ayles building team and interested Members of RFBYC as last night we lifted our first boat off the moulds and turned her over.

Prior to the turn Steve Ward offered a traditional boat builders toast;

There are good ships , there are wooden ships and some that go to sea. But the best ships are friendships which is how it should always be.”


Chris Bowman added his own touch by wetting the keel in Scotch to signify the Scottish heritage of these wonderful boats.


The hull was then turned over and placed on a simple dolly that Steve had miraculously knocked up late that afternoon.
