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.

Time for a New Photo...

This one was built for a freshwater loch in the Highlands, for salmon trawling. The owner didn't much like it and preferred the one he had for many years previously, pictured below. I offered to buy her back. I suppose it's what you get used to, like a comfortable old pair of trousers...


  1. The new picture is so beautiful. I can't stop staring at it.

    I see what you mean.

  2. Oh no... the owner didn't like Freshwater?!
    And to think of all those hours spent holding your pencil and trying to kill you with my risottos while she took shape.
