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.

That's it for the Weekend

The paint arrived just in time to finish off the week on a brighter note. Hempel's light blue and mid grey Multicoat were the colours of choice, with white under the water. The stems may or may not be left varnished. See what it looks like.

The waterline will be cut in finally at the next painting stage. And remind me to get a broom to the place. A job for Monday morning when we will, with luck, turn her over.


  1. There is a lot of anticipation receiving an email from Adrian or seeing a new post on the blog - watching my dream boat taking shape. Many thanks to John Lamb who provided us with his kit.
