Another good week on Boat #1 in that the gunnels and breast hooks have been fitted. She is starting to look very smart.
There is a picture of the bow breast hook which I sourced from a Bangalay (eucalyptus botryoides) that I planted back in 1989.
The plan from here is to start painting Boat #1 while we get Boat #2 to the same point. After painting we will fit out the thwarts, kabes and footrests.
Major progress is being made on the oars with the first finished, from a shaping point of view, and the other 7 all at some stage of shaping.
