One-piece plank fitted

Seonag, one of the regulars in the Local Boat races at the PSBSC, has come in for some repairs including a new plank.  Her owner, Kenneth MacKay, requested that the plank be in one piece, like the original so that Seonag would still not have any scarf joints.  This year’s new team of 6 have made a great job of this task.  The team have also nearly completed work on a boat that used to belong to Sorley Maclean, the famous Gaelic poet and former rector of this school.
