This was a really busy part of our project, which involved a great deal of problem solving to bring the coble to completion. The ribs had to be finished, the tunnel cut and fitted, longitudinals, thwarts, transom, foredeck – to name a few! The rubbing strips were fitted, internal painting complete, then the whole coble had to be tipped on her side to be painted underneath.
Finished at last, just in time to move down the hill for the grand opening of STBF’s new Boat Shed by the harbour. A huge well done to all our volunteers!
