Tolman skiff part 2

I found the article on building a Tolman skiff fascinating, interesting, and well written.
I’m now looking forward to building one for myself, thank you, Bob Barnes

The article on Denman Marine was excellent. My Son is Andrew Denman and he has developed some excellent Wooden Boat Building skills. As his father I am very proud of him. Thank you for the Article written by your Magazine.

Skipper -- Phoenix personified!

Loved Bruce Kemp's inspiring article on how ingenuity, skill and modern and ancient technology can bring a beautiful craft back from the grave. I live not far from Sirens Boatworks, where the three-and-a-half-year project took place, and I was lucky to be able to follow the re-emergence of the boat. I was particularly struck by the elegant finishing work, interior and exterior, so artfully executed by Spartan Rubacha and beautifully captured by Bruce's photographs. I loved discussing the project with Spartan and can't wait to revisit the shop when the pandemic's over!
