From Graham Rankin:
'A flurry of activity today. An symphony of sanding, planing,thicknessing,routing and bandsawing saw the the stretchers coming closer to being glued into place. The "winged" yoke has been rounded and sanded and glued to the rudder, and work started on the "dicky" seat for the bow. The seat is a special request from the WOW girls, so they can carry a spare rower on those long haul journeys. Rob Ayliffe from Stray Dog Boatworks is sending over the Epoxy paint, and Bote Cote has given us a generous discount on the Copr Bote antifouling. This is copper particles suspended in epoxy, which means we wont have repaint every year, bonus!'
