Just now my boat is a skeleton of plywood frames and stringers in my garage. She's a 'Walkabout' design by New Zealander John Welsford.One day we'll sail and row on the Firth of Forth – a few minutes walk from my house in Portobello, Edinburgh. She'll be finished soon before the launch date. Launch date is shortly after she's finished.
To keep me inspired Gerry L's Walkabout is my screen saver.
No blow by blow account of the boat building; no photos of how I solved problems along the way, or designed clever gizmos to make things easier. Firstly, I'm not actually very good at wood working, so there's not much to learn from me. Secondly, if I have the time, I'd rather be building than blogging about it – just now it's too cold to use epoxy, which is my next step. (To see how it should really be done, take a look at Gerry L's blog.)
