Excellent! Many congratulations Doug.

I wonder if that hull would come back in varnish, like I remember them in the 50s?

Speaking from my only experience of a true wooden boat, a little 21/2 ton Hillyard that was planked in full length in Iroko, the problem is what has happened in the intervening years since launch. You just don't have that uniform quality and appearance guaranteed, and you don't find out until the enamel is off. As some know, the Folkboat that I sailed to The Azores was wood but she was one of the ones, like the famous Jester, that was cold moulded. I think a true woody shuld be planked.
