Mostly Beaton’s pics

Busy Winter in the wood shop.  After Sjogin’s recent refit, the Hankins’ skiff Legend was brought in for the same treatment.  There’s also the elegant rowing skiff awaitng return of the principals to salt water to continue her re-construction.

If you have a project, I’m sure Beaton’s could fit you in.

Here you go:

New tiller for Sjogin by Paul Smith.  Bespoke indeed. 

 And a proper sounding lead for Sjogin from the collection of a local legend.  Thanks Bob.

 Here’s Paul tending to last seasons wear and tear on Myth bits.

 Here’s Paul with Sjogin’s new/old boat hook.  The natural Swamp Maple crook was carved by Phil Clarke in the 1970s.  Long enough to sound my way around Barnegat Bay.  No bottom, no problem. 

 Steaming cedar planks for the new rowing skiff.

The seemingly eternal search for fair enough. 

 Look familiar?   It’s the job made form used to set the curve in Sjogin’s coaming.

 Dave explaining the virtues of the new, larger bilge pump.  

The new skiff .  Plenty of twist forward.

Pleasant sheer.
So this was fairly easy.  Sjogin stuff soon.
