Well done folks; see you around. Frame and Formers Go Together.
With little ceremony but great pleasure, KLRC’s first boat was turned in front of the local press. We’re pleased with how it looks, and move on to the next phase – and much cleaning of Glue Squeeze.
A short time-lapse video. Acrylic primer moves the project to a new phase…
Last plank fitted; well done the team. About half way through. The next steps can be seen courtesy of St Ayles Rowing Club, Anstruther here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ykuy3XXBpdw
We intend to Launch her next Spring and now need to start thinking about a trailer and permanent home (for this one and her sister; to be built later)
The Sea Cadets are also holding another ‘Race Night’, contact us if you want come or become an ‘owner’ or ‘jockey in absentia (£4 to be an owner, £16 back if you win, £2 to a jockey, £8 back if you win). The bar will also be open on the night. The last one was good fun.
All 4 sections are now ready for mounting. We are waiting for some Douglas Fir for the Hog; shouldn’t be long. Quite a few people came along on Saturday to see what we were doing including a couple of people interested in developing competing teams. Keep an eye on our calendar for our next workshop openings.
Thanks to a couple of generous donations, several of our members were in the woods last week, cutting and planking Larch, sufficient to meet the needs of both the Baden Powell planking http://www.floatourboat.co.uk/Home.html and our Hogs, Keels, Stems, Gunwales & (possibly) Oars etc. Thanks also to http://norfolkmillsonwheels.co.uk
