Goat Island Skiff slideshow – building in Norfolk UK

Richard Harvey’s (the owner of the Norfolk Goat) son Mark has put a slide show up of the GIS being put together.

A nice compressed view of the project!

Slideshow of the Norfolk GIS being put together on the Yare Valley Sailing Club website.

Looks like a nice little club for wooden and historic boats.

There is also a discussion of the boat on the Ubeaut Woodwork forum.

There are also some nice detail shots of

  • Boat cover arrangments
  • Another trailer arrangement

Looks like a wonderful place to sail.
