Osbert’s nicely shaped John Welsford designed Walkabout dinghy
I’d like to draw attention to Osbert Lancaster’s weblog, Firth of Forthy by sail and oar.
He’s recording two projects at the same time: setting up a new canoe and kayaking club and building one of John Welsford’s Walkabout cruising dinghies. Of these two, I think it’s safe to say that the Walkabout is the most difficult – but there’s no doubt that Osbert is surmounting his challenges and turning out a beautiful looking boat. As one of his neighbours said: ‘You must be fair chuffed.’
Osbert’s a member of the UK messabout group UK Home Built Boat Rally.
