This is the story of our family affair with Chuckle the Nordic Folkboat. 'CHUCKLE' is clinker built with Mahogany planks on Oak frames with Spruce spars. A classic wooden boat. She was built by Harry Feltham in Portsmouth in 1954, one year after the famous singlehanded transatlantic sailer Blondie Hasler had his Folkboat 'Jester' built in the same yard. Perhaps 'Chuckle' and 'Jester' are sisters?

Yes the consequence of asking if you don't have to do a job you are told you do. The articulation of the goose neck would be stuck together in the hot bath of zinc said the galvanizer on the phone. So rivets are now removed. Whole lot pact up and sent away can not wait to get them back can not think what i will do if any of it is lost. Have some science fun for the kids we are preparing to electro zinc plate the nuts and bolts that would be made unusable hot dipped.
