Getting There in My Own Time

The end is in sight, and if pressed launch date could be as early as next week. The thwarts are fitted, and next job are the knees, breasthook and general fitting out; rowlocks, mooring rings etc and floorboards.

No, not this one...


Oh, and lots of lovingly applied Coo-Var "Yacht & Seaplane Varnish". Doesn't that have a nice, old-fashioned ring about it? I can imagine it being applied to those wooden flying boats, their hulls all copper rivets and veneers, some of them, the P5 and N4s, for example, designed by Linton Hope and constructed along boat building lines dating back to the First World War.
