    Not exactly a blog, just a couple of photos to show progress on my Dutch Schouw. She is 27" long, scratch built from drawings in a book on traditional Dutch sailing craft. She will have the typical Dutch high aspect ratio gaff rig with a short curved gaff. Like a Thames Barge, she has leeboards, rather shorter and rounder than those on the Thames Barge. The rudder too is quite large and could be likened to a barn door. How will she sail? I don't know, but when we get our release, I'll find out.

    Cheers, Nerys

    Excellent work, Nerys. I look forward to seeing progress on the finish and the rig. Hopefully you will be able to get out for a sail before too long. Is there a lake at Barnard Castle? Apparently we're allowed to go there.πŸ˜‰

    Thanks Ian. No idea if there's a lake at Barnard Castle, but that's a long way from South West Wales and I'm not sure the First Minister would be very happy if I went that far though it is obviously acceptable for some people. Perhaps it counts as a Freeport or something similar.

    Cheers, Nerys

    It was just a mischievous joke on my part, Nerys. Mr Johnson is relaxing the rules more and more now and I am looking forward to being able to see my grandchildren next week - albeit at a distance. I don't hear anything about the situation in Wales but perhaps your First Minister is being sensibly prudent.

    Although you haven't done a blog I'm sure we'd be interested to hear more of how you drew up and constructed your schouw -well I would anyway.

    All the best,

    Ian

    I'm sure you can go to Barnard Castle as long as you have a optician with you to check you're eyesight🀣🀣🀣

    Very interested to see the Billings version of a Schouw. Do they still produce that kit? Traditionally there were several types from all over the Netherlands, and I know a couple had the sprit rig of your model. Mine is taken from drawings of a class of schouw yacht that was built some years ago. The original was called Zilvermeeuw.

    Cheers, Nerys

    It is a vintage kit but I built it for a friend who was turning 50. His wife asked me to build it as a surprise. It has working sheets, block and tackle, plus you can set and retract the ballast boards on each side of the hull. Came complete with sails and fittings.

    It may still be available, but not through Billings.

    Ron. That's very interesting, looking through my books on Dutch craft, the Billings kit appears to be a kalmschouw, one of the few built as open boats. but don't ask me what that means. I was also interested to see that Billings at one time did a kit of a Hoogars, which is another one I have plans to build. Thanks for posting the link.

    Cheers, Nerys
