Currently underway in the Isle Ewe Boat shed is a New 18ft long traditional clinker planked launch designed by us. It's been comissioned by a customer who lives in Tiree and it's going to be used mainly for rod fishing. In the design spec, the boat had to have two heavy bilge keels and stainless steel strapping attached with a towing point on the forefoot for hauling the boat out of the water when the weather is poor, as Tiree in a fairly exposed island. The backbone of the boat will be built mainly of Opepe with a curved Oak transom. It will be planked with Larch, copper fastening to Oak framing.
