    'MOJO' was a boat that i was asked to make for someone.

    I think i have achieved the original request.

    (The plan is just to make something that is functional and pleasing to the eye, something that will not be complicated and not have lots of bits that could brake off )

    As you guys know i have not made a boat using wood for many many years, so i am quite pleased with the final outcome.

    Thank you for the very kind nice comment Nerys.
    I do try but draw the line at fibreglass.
    That stuff i really hate to work with.

    Moving from one medium to another is far from easy, as I know from my attempt to build an LST in plastic where I normally work in wood. It shows Martin's supreme ability to work in any media, to produce a boat to this standard, in wood, after so many years.

    Cheers, Nerys

    Hi Colin,
    You will have to explain to him that you are trying to rescue poor and sick boats and not make new boats.

    Martin, you certainly got your MOJO working on this beautiful boat, it doesn't matter what material you have used your craftsmanship shines through in bucketloads.
    Well done shipmate, looking forward to your next project.
    Cheers Colin.

    That looks brilliant Martin, I'm sure someone would be proud to own it if you were to sell it, (I'd certainly buy it without hesitation). but I think you should keep it as an example of your re- found woodworking ability. You'll have to find some way of getting to a pond to do it justice,- as I'm sure it will look great on the water. I'd take you myself if I wasn't 11400 miles away😁
