Longest boat building project ever. Probably!

Model of boat started in the 1950s
It’s been too cold in the workshop the last few days to do any of the painting or epoxying that I needed to do. The roads are just too slippy to risk going to pick up materials for the next project. So I got this down off the shelf to keep me busy while I wait for it to warm up.
Is this the longest model boat-building project ever? Probably! It was started by my father in the mid fifties, I think, and lay on the top shelf in his workshop for my entire life. Until, that is, he moved house and had to clear out his workshop. I thought it was high time that the model was finished. I have the spars and sails that he made all those years ago and I’ve glued up the waterline pieces . There’s also a keel section which I will add later when I have the main hull shaped.Bread and butter model boat started in the 1950s

So if you’ve ever thought of having your own beautiful wooden boat don’t wait any longer, before you know it life might have passed you by. Get a move on and contact Tiernan Roe to discuss having your dream boat built so that you can enjoy it with your family and friends. Sixty years is way too long to wait for a boat.
