This blog is about sailing my home-build "Goat Island Skiff". A 16ft wooden "new classic" dinghy designed by Michael Storer.
I have started building this boat in September 2009 and launched it October 2010. I am using it mainly as a single-handed trailer-sailer dinghy in my home-area, the inland waterways of the Dutch "Biesbosch" and surrounding rivers.

Oars and oarlocks.

For convenient rowing it's nice to have your oars fixed in the oarlocks at the right position.
I have made epoxy-glas reinforcements on these places to avoid wearing.
After that I applied some thickend epoxy and winded a piece of rope around it. I used some masking tape to fix this rope until the epoxy has cured.
When the epoxy is hard, the rope is well fixed and avoids sliding out of the oarlocks.
