Ferry Lass back on duty soon

Mark reports: Her ladyship will be her painted loveliness and ready to row on Sunday… We think.

Mike B at work

John was putting a final coat of varnish on the gunnel and on her re-crafted, go-faster rudder on Thursday. (Try not to touch the gunnels before Sunday.) Meanwhile George and Mike B were painting the footrest saddles and Mike M fine tuned the stroke footrest. Duncan and Douglas also have done huge amounts of woodwork and painting. Others chipped in as well especially for the turnovers, so please forgive any oversights and thank you.

The two Mikes work on the new footrests

We will re-fit on Saturday. This includes:

  • Taping the floor along the footrest tracks
  • Installing the anchor rope reel
  • Fitting the footrests and marking the positions similar to Maid.
  • Bow and stern ropes on
  • Seats on and pegged
  • Bung tied in
  • Cox footrest fitted.
