Puffin has had a clean out and we’ve had a (killer) whale of a time unscrewing things, re-screwing things, taking things apart and forgetting how they went together. The good news is that after a bit of sanding and planing we can see that there’s not much wrong with her! There’s a bit of rot around a couple of the oarlock holes but nothing that some new hardwood and epoxy can’t fix. Her hull looks sound but just to be on the safe side we’re getting NB’s chief boat engineer Norman to come out and have a gander. Fingers crossed she passes the medical.
