From Graham Rankin: 

'After the flurry of day 54, we seem to have found our mojo (or perhaps we can see the light at the end of the tunnel).   Another busy day with Dennis turning the rowlock pins,these have a slight taper and after being covered in tape they were fitted to the pin holes which were lined with epoxy. When set the pins can be removed leaving a tapered hole, allowing the pins to sit snuggly at the right angle.  Pete and Willis finished the stroke stretchers and glued them into place which means all the stretchers are now in place.The bow seat frames were also glued in and the seat formed ready for glueing on Friday.'
