Earwigoagin covered the beginning stages of Peter Gilbert's building of the Lark scow and now Peter sends along photos of wrapping up the build, the fitting out, and first sail of Pinky Too.
From this perspective, the photo of the curvaceous deck with white primer looks like a spaceship ready to beam up into the light field.
Racing stripes on the deck. Now that's cool!
Floorboards look to be simple pine lath strips.
Nearly the whole Erieau Lark fleet showed up to get over the final hump of fitting out. Beer included.
Been there, done that! The blind search for the socket while you hold the nut and washer on underdeck bolt.
Sail up. Fittings still piled about the bow. The classic looking sail was made by The Sail Loft Marine Store in Barrie Ontario.
Given the smile on the face, looks like everything is holding together on the first sail of Pinky Too
First race is this weekend, but now, time for the brother build team, Peter and Scott, to enjoy a glass of bubbly and celebrate a job well done. (One of the features of the scow, at least the larger ones, is that one or more can stand comfortably on the bow.)
