Some completed skiff projects may not be surprised to hear that our build has lasted much longer than originally envisaged, mostly because of lack of volunteer time. In our case, we outstayed our welcome at the original build shed, which had to be used for other purposes. The skiff has now been moved to a shed behind the old Mission building, where further completion work has taken place.
Duncan sent these pictures, mostly relating to fitting the gunwales. The first set shows the gunwale fitting and the number of clamps needed to hold the wood together. This needs to be strong as it transmits all the power from the rowers, once the rowlocks are fixed.
Some detail of the completed gunwales. Note these are the inner gunwales of the kit
