Steaming Gunnels: 2nd-6th June

Categories: Build,Events,Expeditions,Families,Juniors,Row

We spent this week steaming gunnels – not as straight forward as it looks folks

Pat had a big long pipe where we lay one gunnel. We attached 2 wall paper steamers and ‘cooked’ the wood for around 40 minutes.

Once out of the steamers all hell broke loose as we quickly clamped the wood to a ‘Gig’  – the wood bends round the gig to form the shape we need for the gunnel.
