Vendia 9mm planking from Finland and Collano Semparoc glue from Switzerland, plus a few coats of International Clear Primer, white paint, what a brilliant combination to build a boat. Here's the latest Viking Boats of Ullapool creation, an Iain Oughtred-designed Arctic Tern, the 17ft version, after being turned. and at the long process of fitting out begins.

Spring is Sprung(ing)...

The daffs are shining in the sun (or at least they were yesterday), buds are budding and the strath is coming alive once more after a grim, long winter. Time for a new header picture too, this one a 16ft lug sailed boat  built last year for Loch Torridon.

The next one on the stocks is a rather different craft: the gun punt of posts passim.
