    Leo and Síle A Dó

    September 18, 2010

    My friend Leo purchased a rather down at heel wooden fishing boat and is busy converting it to a sailing ketch.

    A tall order.  Leo is a very talented carpenter and has been busy for the past year working on Sile at Hegarty’s Yard in Oldcourt, near Baltimore.

    After the boat was dragged ashore, he removed the ancient engine, the cabin, fore bulwarks and decking, built a tent around the craft and set to work extending the stern.

    Visit his blog, long on pictures and short on words, and be amazed.
