Yes Ken, I'd heard a whisper.

A very nice boat and still in good hands. Reckon I'll be seeing you both on the water in no time at all.

I can see some spirited demonstrations coming up between a couple of Vic based Storm hulls

Remember the days when we thought there were only a couple of skiffs of any breed remaining in Oz?

It's great to see the boat has a new home and will hit the water again

Zarak has had the fibreglass removes,the bottom planks had not bonded and came away easily but the higher planks that had not been oil soaked took a lot of work and it pulled small splinted from the timber .I have fitted five full ply planks and three half planks .

Good progress Ken. You don't stuff around. That hull doesn't look too bad from what I can see.

Fibreglass can hide some serious faults this is one of the bottom planks
