Work starts on new National 12

Work has now started on Stuart Walsh’s new National 12, which is a 4-pank interpretation of Jo Richards’ Dead Cat Bounce. I have now got the building frames cut out and set up, with hog, centreboard case, apron, transom and stringers fitted and faired ready for planking to commence next week. It is 21 years since I last built a National 12, at the tender age of 17, so this is a real trip down memory lane for me.
