New Toy

We now have a new addition to the Boat Shed in the shape of a two man canoe. The facts as we know at the moment is that it was built in the 1960's by Rodgers of Plymouth. At some time it was damaged and the broken ribs have been replaced with oversized ones.

Compared with the Edwardian canoe we are already working on this one is rather heavy.

Extreme Woodworking

Now the Christmas holiday period is over Shaune and John are once again busy with Shamrocks winter maintenance.

A new forward section of the main hatch coaming has been shaped and is waiting to be fitted.

This is being delayed while rot on the port forward end of the coaming is removed and a new piece of timber scarfed in.
