Octavia's paint dries

Chris Waite's much-anticipated rowing skiff Octavia is nearing completion for launch at Lechlade and rowing down to the Thames Boat Show at Beale Park next week. She is looking very good, with wooden outriggers, a particularly stylish aft seat for girl+parasol, and Chris's trademark paint scheme. I'm really looking forward to rowing her.

Just noticed the boat is held together with string. Very clever, bolts and wing nuts get lost but you can always find a bit of string. Octavia is really looking stunning now - can't wait to see her in the flesh, so to speak.
