Last week we popped down just for the day, to fit and fix the gunwhales and inwhales (or rubbing strakes – depending who you ask). It was quite a trip – we spent almost as long on the bus as we had in the workshop – but it was a productive session and made a real difference to the feel of the boat. It was a fiddly job but thanks to David we had plenty of clamps to help encourage the wood into place.
It was lovely to see the Parrett in the Spring Sunshine – lets hope we get weather like this for the launch!
You can expect to hear more from us soon as we are writing now from a lovely spot near Drayton.
