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...)

Garboards

The garboards are now fixed and the next step is to make the skeg, after which it'll be on to the strongback for planking up in 8mm larch.



The garboards were made a tad over 9mm, as I want the centreline to be strong. The stem/apron is split, and the outer stem will be added once planking is done.

At a little over 8ft, this is not so much an Auk as an Ork (or if you are a Tolkien fan, an Orc). But not quite so ugly, I would hope.
