Workshop News

Ulva and the 9ft clinkers are in the final stages of painting. I have started kitseting a Welsford Pathfinder and a 17ft single sliding seat openwater rowboat that we will build as soon as I get some workshop space. The race boat we thought was post war is pre- war 1930s according to two race boat history buffs that are trying to identify her. she has 5 new Kauri frames in her 6 to go and a new transom I plan to get all the topsides/decks structurally sound all sub framing installed ready to skin i will then flip her over and pull the planking off new hog and keel check the chine rail and re-bolt it and the keel to new floors then re-skin using existing planking and replacing any damaged boards .
