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.

Loki at Large

Here, by popular demand, is a typical shot of Loki at the recent Coigach Regatta, lifted from Ulla's website ( showing the brave Royal Loch Broom Sailing Club stroking, if not to victory, then to third place lead by bow man Robert, No 3 Andy, No 2 Sandy and stroked by John, with Commodore Copestake in steerage.

The strength of the wind, and temperature can be judged by the fact that Loki's figurehead was protected throughout the day with a wooly hat (celebrating her Irish bow man's birth place). Cut down on windage too.
