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.

It's That Perkins again...

Will and Kate can thank their lucky stars our Mr "Snatch" Perkins, photographer extraordnaire, is safely ensconced up here in Strathkanaird, rather than hiding behind a palm tree on their honeymoon isle. Once again he popped out of the woodwork to catch the Hon Sec of the Royal Loch Broom Sailing Club unawares beside the club St Ayles skiff Loki's figurehead. This time I managed a cheery gesture before Chris disappeared again... (to catch a plane to the Seychelles, perhaps?)
