From Graham Rankin:  

'The usual group of suspects gathered, lovingly stroked the gunwhales, admired the lines and decided a cuppa was in order. After that it was back to sanding, more fibreglass on the oarlocks and the cox's seat was fixed into place. Despite earlier reports we have decided not to go for the clamp option for the sake of the cox's comfort and concentration. Next week will see work start on the rudder yoke, more fillet work on the plank lands and forming up of the stretchers(New Zealand style)'
