More seaworthy

“I have been busy since Saturday finishing the sledge for the boat & now I am building the boat up 1 foot higher & decking her in half way making her fit to carry the whole party in case we have to make a longer journey than we intisipate at present.

“I have started to raise the Dudley Docker a strake higher at my leisure. It is to pass time for me & it makes the boat carry more & more seaworthy.”

— Harry McNeish
