There's no disguising the fact that the Home Built Boat Rally forum is populated mainly by the middle-aged, including me, but Peter-John Sanders is the exception. He has been building boats from a very young age and his latest has just hit the water. "The launch went very well and I had a great weekend messing about in it with two friends on the canal," he writes. "It's a Selway Fisher Stornoway 9 design and it rows really nicely. It's going to have a sailing rig, I have finished the mast, daggerboard and rudder, and have nicked the yard and sail from my little green one."
He hopes to bring the boat to an HBBR meet, but it won't be soon because he goes up to university shortly.
