Nigel Towse of Sherkin is a gentleman and scholar – I know this because he has very kindly sent me these great photos of the launch of the AK Ilen via my musical pal Katie Howson. Thanks for your kind help, both of you!
The Ilen looks great of course, and they had such a nice day for it!
Here’s an earlier post announcing that the launch after seven years’ hard work was imminent.
For your further entertainment, here is a project he was involved with a few years back, and here’s his lovely 1892 Heir Island lobster boat, Hanorah.
