The final parts of the gunwales are on and will be unclamped. The cox’s seat (improved version, not the fairies’) is in as well. Structurally the hull is complete, just over five months since we started laminating parts, and that includes a long break at Christmas and New Year when it was cold and the fairies were drunk and lazy.
Tomorrow it’s more scraping and sanding, sanding, sanding.
Artists of Seil – Stand by for painting duties!
Update late afternoon 17th
Sanding not quite completed today but a cheerful afternoon was had and another couple of hours will see everything ready for painting. Our lovely Seil skiff deserves the best and another session next Sunday will be enough.
