Bendigo Skiff rowlocks in place

The Bendigo Skiff was flipped on Monday night, allowing finishing touches to be applied to the topsides.  That included installing the 'mystery' rowlocks.  The 'mystery' question is, will they work?  Rule 3 for the St Ayles Skiff design states 'Oarlock fittings are to be made of timber suitable for its purpose', leaving a very wide scope for experimentation.  'Imagine' has cabes, 'Swan' has pegs, and now we have this new design.
