Destined for the Isle of Mull and possibly my last boat, as my tenure at the farm is up after 18 years

Arctic Tern

Too busy to blog; here's a few shots of the Arctic Tern taking shape in the old cowshed at Leckmelm for the last month or so. I believe this is designer Iain Oughtred's favourite, and I can see why.

For the curious, the details are: larch keelson, laminated Vendia stems, oak keel, daggerboard, not c/b. The fit out has yet to be decided, whether to go for a traditional joggled framing or laminated frames, or even a combination of the two.

Collars and Jeckells will make the lug rig.
