The harbour punt is on the way and soon ready for the planking to go on. The centre line is fastened using 3/8″ copper rivet. Once the moulds and timbers are braced and the final position fixed, the rabbet will be cut in, the transom faired in and the planking will start going on. All centre line timber is seasoned oak. Oak bottom planking and Larch for the rest of the planking will be delivered in two weeks.
The Harbour Punt needs someone to commission the rest of the build. Could you be interested in owing a newly built 14′ replica of a 1962 Porthleven built clinker punt? Please get in touch and come and have a look at the build and the study and design work.
