Saturday afternoon it was near 100 degrees so the wind was coming from the East (not normal) blowing about 5-6 knots! Here are a few shots of Slough Coot making way under sail.
This last week I believe I completed the last structural build on “Slough Coot”. This last piece was building the solid teak bases for three brass cleats – two for the mainsheet traveler and one near the center of the aft deck for the painter-line that will tow the dinghy.
This rainy morning I cut and installed the leather oar protectors and stops.
Today I received and then mounted the placard for “Slough Coot’s” tender. Meet “Coot Chick”.
Today I built this little redwood pram a set of Douglas fir oars! She’s ready for a swim.
Today I finished the redwood pram custom built for “Slough Coot” the Dudley Dix Cape Henry 21.
