It has been a while since my last update and despite the lack of news I have actually been very busy. However, although I might have completed a job I am not always able to share it immediately if it is a gift that has yet to be presented! I have over a dozen completed blades that fall into this category.

In the meantime, enjoy a silly photo of my car laden with the fruits of a long drive around Somerset and Devon. 18 sweep and 10 sculling oars.


I stayed with an old rowing mate who has renovated a pub. The Royal George in Appledore is well worth a visit!
