Over at boatbuilder Mark Rolt’s yard in Bristol, the bawley Fiddle of Faversham, is in for repair and has got a new mast – the photo below shows why!

The boat in the background isn’t Fiddle, btw – see her here.

Alasdair Grant’s Lewenie makes progress

Alasdair Grant has been in touch with these photos of his current self-designed project, a 21ft carvel motor launch named Lewenie, which has an interior layout specified by his customer.

Click on the thumbnails above to see much larger images.

Alasdair says she looks like she’ll be ready for her planned launch in July, all being well.

Read all about her here.

The Number 1 covered slipway at Plymouth really is the best shed ever, isn’t it? And the work of Stirling and Son that goes on inside it looks pretty cool too.

See the winter maintenance work Will Stirling and co have been doing on a Vertue, Tom Thumb, and a 1930s gaff cutter, Mirelle.
