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.

Getting There

The topsides had their fourth coat of navy blue, the interior its final coat of pale cream Multicoat and the thwarts and seats were dry fitted to make sure everything looked OK, and also it's nice to get some idea of what the fruit of all the work will eventually look like.

The bits and pieces arrived from Arthur Beale in London the other day, and next week I will begin the fitting out.

Meanwhile Steve Hall at North Sea Sails is working on the standing lug sail and cover.
