    and here's the wrecked hull of a Footy belonging to Rod which will also be burned!! Rod grew up near Lindisfarne, which was the site of the first Viking raid on an English monastery... they do remember...




    It is a curious shape because "I (Rod) was experimenting with methods to make Footy hulls with excessively cheap methods and materials--the Footy is not supposed to cost a lot of money, but it is supposed to be highly advanced in design.....This one was designed on a CAD program, the stations made of paper with foam blocks sanded to shape then glued together into a hull shape, covered in paper and piaint, then foam dissolved."
