Over the coming week it is going to be a very busy time with three boats on the go. One in the workshop, one at Canvey Island and the another boat in Ipswich. The boats are all very different to each other and in need of very different skills to do the work on. One is having new planks fitted and that takes a special skill to cut wood to bend round a complex shape in the bow of a dinghy. The boat at Canvey Island needs the skills of carpentry to fit bulkheads and furniture, also to fit new wiring and pipework and pumps. The boat in Ipswich needs the skills of a painter to repaint the hull and interior of the boat as well as the yards of varnish work that needs to be sanded down and re-varnished.
