We have planks!

Now that Andres, the great instigator of this project, is back from holiday, work on the Portobello skiff has moved ahead.

Offering up the garboard (the lowest plank) to the hog (the solid timber along the centre line).

Getting it to fit just right.

Just checking.

Glueing’s been done, now the garboard is clamped into place while the glue sets.

And the second garboard in on.

Yes, it’s looking good. A few more planks to go.

Plank 3.

More planks.

Really looking like a boat!
If you’d like to help build the boat, come along! To find out when the building sessions are happening, sign up to the Row Porty discussion list to find out the details.
