Little Gwennie 50-year-old clinker plywood dinghy

Here’s a photodiary of project undertaken at our friend boatbuilder Alan Thorne’s workshop in the Faversham Creek Trust’s Purifier Building.

Little Gwennie is a little plywood clinker tender built 50 years ago, and the work has been done my Alan’s son Mark. I’d say he had some of his father’s perfectionist tendencies.
