Chris Perkins writes with news that the first St Ayles skiff is rapidly taking shape in Alec Jordan's workshop in Fife. The aim is to produce a boat that can be easily built by sea scouts, rowing clubs, community groups and even pub teams (darts? no thanks!). Chris says a considerable amount of interest has been generated, and even spotted a model of the boat and a poster in the window of a pub in East Wemyss.
Thanks to Chris for the pics - at the top is a view of the moulds with keelson and false stem in place, and to the left is Alec wielding a power planer.
