Ribbing was the name of the game these past few months.  Big laminated ribs for the lapstrake hull of our Viking ship 'Aegir" a replica 800AD Gokstadt type original in the Oslo Viking Museum.  Small solid spotted gum ribs for the carvel hull of 'Cats Paw" an original Sydney 1930's sailing dinghy depicted last month.
Two other sailing boats of Sydney harbour heritage are having final coates of varnish in their retoration process.  A 1950's 16 foot skiff of laminated cedar and a 1970's cedar plywood NS14.
