Tender for Hardyesse sail training vessel.

The brief was to replicate a trusty old tender that had been condemned. Clinker built, larch on oak construction, she was to be safe, stable and sturdy and able to carry a large load - quite the opposite to all of the requirements for the skiff.

This shows the whole process, from patern making, back bone, planking, framing, and finishing. I enjoy seeing her in the Summer, working in Falmouth Harbour and the Penryn River.
