Off she goes, Iain Oughtred's slightly foreshortened Penny Fee, at 15ft. Sails by Jeckells, spars by the wonderful Jeremy Freeland at Collars. The rest by Messrs Burke and Morgan (that's Jonny by the way...)

One more week and she'll be ready for the owner's visit, rigging, trial sail and off down south.
Then it's on with another Oughtred boat, a Sula, Iain's only design for solid wood, a Shetland boat destined for Ireland.
