St Ayles skiff prototype under construction

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.
