From Graham Rankin:
'Not sure what happened to day 45, a bit of blur after the excitement of the Wooden Boat Festival and the Skiff Regatta, but now it's time to get back into it. Today saw the thwarts glued in place, and the oar locks sanded, ready for fibreglassing. The skiff drew many compliments at the Festival and the Regatta and we had the opportunity to check out the custom features of the other skiffs over the weekend. Some of the Kiwis ideas have given us plenty to think about! With the launch date getting ever closer, we'll have to start thinking about a name soon, too.'
