The blog will now be devoted not to boat building but to my 82-year-old Vertue, Sally II, now undergoing a well needed refit at Johnson & Loftus in Ullapool (and gliding...)

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.
