Gunnels on

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.

  1. Congratulations on the progress being made on the Skiffs since I visited you in early October when the third planks were just being fitted to #2 hull. The breast hook graining looks magnificent after varnishing. Keep up the good work, you are making a piece of art to be proud of. When is your projected launch day?
