Boats

2016 was a full and busy year.
 A 13 foot  lug rigged sailing dinghy, ‘Grizzled Skipper’ left the shed in September bound for Western Australia and a Foster 10 ‘Bellela’ was completed for the Peregrine School at Nicholls Rivulet, Tasmania.  This was for Peregrines’ annual fundraising raffle. She left the shed in the end of October 2016.  
There was also many pieces of furniture and commissions. Then we sold the farm and workshop and moved up the road. Massive change and no time for the tools for awhile.
However, back into it now and building another Foster 10. This one is bound for Virginia USA. We will be steam bending ribs into her at the Australian Wooden Boat Festival 10-13 February.  Also finishing some furniture and a couple of ukes. So the year has started apace.  
 Progress photos have been posted on instagram @ned_wood.
