Shimshal's permanent mooring gets a fine new boat house

Shimshal is moored near Arduaine and we are lucky enough to own the remnants of an old and derelict boathouse on the shore a hundred metres or so from her mooring. After 12 months of seeking the appropriate permissions we cleared the site last autumn. This spring Brian and Darren, friends from mid Wales, set about building us a fine new boathouse. It is a robust steel framed structure clad in Siberian larch. Already the wood is starting to go silver and blend into the landscape.
