Building a skiff…

— Skiff at Dundee

Hi All
The Skiff kit arrived at the boat shed this morning on the roof rack of a Beemer!
Tony and Ian unpacked the two boxes and found that all the parts had been cut from the sheets and also numbered, this will save quite a bit of work.
The Christmas lights will be moved out of the shed on Tues, Wed, Thurs next week so we will have to leave access for their removal and the removal of the support frames.

All the cut-out boat parts will need their edges sandpapering to remove the laser dross.

Work party

This Saturday we are having our work party. If you have some time and can come along to give us a hand, see you at the clubhouse (from around 10:00).
There are always ‘other’ jobs to be done, even if they are not on the maintenance list. If you have ideas to improve the club and can help out to get those ideas into reality, contact us to discuss those.
