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.

One for Rieke...

Here's one for Mattis' sister, who recently joined the blog to check up, no doubt, on her brother and make sure he's actually hard at work, which he was when I last saw him this afternoon, slaving over a hot plane. Although he admitted when I asked him about whether he'd be in the shed over the weekend that "he would probably not be in a great state on Sunday morning." Something to do with St Patrick's Day, perhaps?

With a name like Mattis Voss I find it hard to believe he is indeed Irish (almost as hard as I find it understanding what he's on about sometimes, but then I am a little deaf from all that power planing and hammering, not to mention motor bikes in my youth).
