Ninigret returns

DSC_0050I’ve just brought the Ninigret that I built 5 years ago in for some re-finishing of her varnish work. Mostly the rubrail, no surprise, and the corners of seat back-rests and other high wear areas. The rest of the paint is in pretty good condition. Even the green topcoat is showing no signs of chalkiness or any other indications that it’s suffering from exposure. Overall I’m very pleased with how the paint system is holding up.

Ninigret has proved remarkably easy to maintain. Apart from some one crashing into her at the dock, they left two small holes where their bow roller punched through the ply, she hasn’t needed much more than a good clean and periodic engine servicing. She does however have a good cover that keeps her dry and ventilated during the winter. She is stored outside at the owners home.

In fact I received a nice note from the owner after he say the latest Roeboats launch in which he said “I think that boat you completed in the summer is beautiful” and “After several summers of successful enjoyment of the Ninigret, I thought I would say what a beautiful design, and outstanding craftsmanship, it is too.” Like everyone it’s great to get positive feedback and i know from talking to him that he gets great enjoyment using the boat and receives many compliments from people who see the boat.

If you would like to have a beautiful boat built for you or would like to discuss having your current boat repaired or restored please don’t hesitate to contact Tiernan at +353 28 38973 or +353 86 1586937 or send an email to

  1. What’s on the cards now (presume refinishing will not take too long on Ninigret) with the Cape Henry 21 finished? Looking forward to following the next project!

  2. Just finished Ninigret today. A quick wash and she’ll be back under cover for the winter. Picked up the planking for the next project today. Further updates to follow.
