Wooden racing shells

JohanR has just commented on a postof a couple of years back on wooden racing shells
"I took the KingFisher structure & dimentions and fitted the Kaschper curves onto the KF moulds. Used some 1.5mm mahogany bending ply and covered with thin fibreglass for stiffening. She's almost done and looking not too shabby..."
I haven't got your email, JohanR - could you send some pictures? And if Duncan, Kev and Charles N are reading this, did you manage to build the shells you had in mind? All pics gratefully received!

I've recently started the Wooden Rowing Shells group on Flickr if you're looking for inspiration. If anyone has suitable content, please feel free to join the group and add it.
