Latest from the boatshop

The latest project in the boatshop is the refit of the 22' Devlin Surf Scoter "Bunky's uncle". 

The boat was just a little too big to fit in either of the workshops, so Randy designed and built this bowshed, modelled after the ones commonly used in colder climates. It was economical to build, scalable, spacious and will be easy to store between projects.

It will even look a little like the Sydney Opera House... but with more visqueen.
