The Tub

Elf, Imp, Ed and Fred put in a bid to build a small boat in the Community Boat Building event at the Wooden Boat Festival in February. There were 14 slots available for teams to build either a 10' Feather or a Peace Canoe. Their entry was good enough for them to be given a slot. They have already started with the briefing and training - the actual building will happen on site at the Festival. They are building a Feather, using plywood and stitch-n-glue techniques.

I am of course invaluable in a logistics and support role, looking after the kids. I took a sharp step backwards when boatbuilding volunteers were called for. I would not like to have any drownings on my conscience. The working title of the little boat is The Tub.
