Flotta Yole

Flotta Yole, hand carved by Rodney Flett (From the Fletts o Garson, Flotta) Hand carved from a solid block of ash, mahogony decking and using brass from electric plugs and aloy from butchers rails for the metal work. All done by hand, working from old photos of a yole built by his grandfather.

Nice work and very 'tactile'-looking. A (sharp) shot of the stern showing rudder-fittings etc would be of interest.
