Update on St Ayles Skiffs Maintenance

The maintenance crew have been busy – Imagine has been painted inside; gunnels have solid (myrtle) inserted over end ply; joins under oar blocks; new oar blocks with upper system that can be unscrewed if worn; original oars repaired and sealed; gunnels oiled; repair to water damaged top strake.

Possible future improvement to footboards to allow full foot pressure. Freyja trial strap on bow footboard effective.

Figurehead (Bittern) completed for Freyja, eagle to be finished by February for Imagine.

Dennis is the contact for all works/ initiatives.
