Now that the Coot has gone off to her new home I have been browsing through various designs choosing which boat to build next.
This is a rare luxury and one which shouldn't be spoiled with any undue haste, and of course once I have finally made my decision it will be a wee while before she is launched.
So in the meantime, and just to keep me busy I've decided to scratch the itch which has been annoying me for quite a while and build the amas for Katie Beardie.
So it was off to Totton Timber for a couple of sheets of their finest 4mm Birch Ply, and I have to say it feels great to be building again. .
I'm very happy to say that the the panels stitched together very well straight from the plans, with only a modicum of tweaking.
Katie and I will be off for our annual Thames Raid at the end of next week so work will stop for a while but I hope to have the new additions ready for Cobnor in August.
Watch this space.
