17. Massive New Pilot Cutter Build / Ferry Planks

THIS episode, I visit local boatbuilder Luke Powell and his team, who are building an enormous Pilot Cutter called Pellew, which is a copy of the Vincent, originally built in 1852. Then I head back to Butler & Co’s yard in Penpol, and explain how I fit a shutter plank into the hull of the new traditionally built Ferry that is being constructed there.
