From Peter Heading:
'A day of good progress with a dozen people beavering away. A boat building milestone was achieved today - the stems hog and four frames were glued together to form the backbone of the skiff . Work began on the the oars with a group preparing four superb lengths of Oregon timber ready for shaping. The third pair of planks were scarfed and glued together. Still a lot of shaping of the rabbet this Friday, and I think everyone is looking forward to fitting the first pair of planks next Wednesday.'
