Busy, Busy, Busy


Things are getting busy now with the Ilur awaiting final touches and the imminent arrival of 35 sheets of 6mm Vendia from Finland, ready to start planking the Gartside skiff, for which the stems have been made and beveled to accept the garboards.


The stems have been laminated from 20mm oak, cheeks of 6mm Robbins Eilte ply, with a further layer of 15mm oak each side just below the waterline to support the garboard at its twistiest. The ply template is to check the bevel is fair throughout the transition from keelson to stem.
