Scow update

The restoration of our Scow isn’t going very quickly, in fact all I seem to have accomplished is to take things to pieces. The deck, which I removed before we went on holiday seems to smile, provocatively at me every time I go in the garage.

But with a keen interest in Scows it was nice to find this one in the boat compound at Bucklers Hard on the Beaulieu river. I took loads of pictures to get some ideas of the fittings and arrangements which will be useful when I start rebuilding.

This nice example is a Beaulieu Scow, built locally, I’ve seen a few sailing in the mill pool below Beaulieu village, where there’s a small sailing club.

On the same subject I got a nice email from Leafy, who lives, paints and blogs from Mersea Island on the east coast, she is a Scow sailor and her delightful graphic is based on her restored Scow.
