…do do Ron Ron Ron…& Ali !

February 21, 2010

&The boat shed was abuzz over the weekend with Coigach Lass lead-builders Ron D and Ali B assisted by ‘Ulla’ builders ….

Ron D and Ali

Too much sitting down on the job, Ali !

Once again Ron D and Ali-together with the ‘Ulla’ builders- do a bit of problem-solving on the build.

Ron doing a bit of spokeshaving...



has become

of  the other of the Two Ronnies, Ron R ??

He was last seen a couple of weeks ago marching purposefully off to his own shed with some of the Douglas Fir to make oars! Today a wee birdie tells me that the first oar is a thing of incandescent beauty. Can’t wait to see it!

The first Skiff competition is to be held in Anstruther on the 29th May. Will our  ‘Coigach Lass‘  be ready and crewed? It’s a big ask  – but when has Coigach ever wanted to  ride the fail-train? Thanks again to Chris Perkins for photos.

    Great to see you are having a good winter Ali B! I’m keeping up with the progress through the site – and well done to those who keep it updated. 🙂 It’s nice to know what is going on ‘across the Minch’. Good luck!
