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.

Latest on the Arctic Tern

Bottom painted and topsides varnished, we turned her over yesterday to fit the mast step and on Monday the spars should be arriving from Collars. The rudder is hung and the tiller made, which just leaves the rig.

Sails from Steve Hall at North Sea Sails came this morning, and the owner arrives Tuesday to supervise the rigging.

Then she's off south, not before we have a trial sail.
