Spars Part II

Next came the boom and I also needed to make a boat hook and oars for the dinghy.

The boom is solid for the weight and glued up in two halves of Sitka Spruce. No scarfs required, I had a length of Sitka long enough to make the 19ft boom

Making the round tapered boom is pretty straightforward. 

The boat hook tapered and  eight sided 

  The oars eight sided and ready for final shaping

Finished oars and boat hook
