From Graham Rankin:
'A day punctuated with many visitors dropping in to see what we do, mostly people who had come for the Festival and have stayed around, happy to continue with their maritime "fix". Today saw a clean up up of glue from the thwarts, sanding and more sanding. The frames for the cox's seat have been fashioned and celery top for the seats thicknessed,ready for shaping. The timber oar locks were given their first coat of epoxy to strengthen them. This is the system in favour with a lot of the Scottish boats at the moment, so who are we to argue? Mick wasn't really lying down on the job, either.'
