From Pete Heading:
'Old projects drawing to close and new ones starting up . Our dedicated oar makers have pretty well sanded the life out of the four oars and they're almost ready for varnishing. The fifth pair of planks are glued in place and all is looking on course for the last pair to be glued on this coming Friday. The rudder blade is in the process of being shaped . Next is sorting out the keel and the outer stems- a bit of work yet but the great turning over ceremony is within sight'.
