2017.05.10 - Naiad Anniversary

Two years ago to the day I went down South and returned with Naiad.


This is what she looked like when I bought her...


...and this is what she looks like as of lunchtime today.


The boom and gaff are just in place to check that I've not messed up the measurements.


The bowsprit is in place for the photo shoot.


The spars do look rather nice in their varnish even if it's not finished just. Another two coats minimum to go on yet.

Still, she is the same boat yet an entirely different boat at the same time.
