Today was more sanding and tidying, plus finishing off the stems. We need to cut some douglas fir for the gunwhales, as the meranti proved too brittle to take the curve at the stern; that should happen later this week, and hopefully at least the inwhales and possibly the gunwhales will be in place for next Sunday.
We are hoping to put a list of possible names in the next Seilachan, including at least a couple of those already suggested by the school. People will then be able to vote on the website (or by phone or letter if they do not have internet access). If you have any suggestions for names please let us know within the next few days, as the copy deadline for February’s Seilachan is fast approaching.
