Wen was built as a retirement/carer project. I worked on the build 2 days a week for 18 months. My objective was to use my woodworking skills again after years of teaching, 8 years as a woodwork teacher. All aspects of the build was sequenced with building notes supplied by the designer Allen Witt.
Wen rows very well and I’m very proud of her final finish. Her oar blades, rudder blade and centre board are all painted pink in recognition of breast cancer awareness.
