Damn, that's a lot of horsepower for such a small boat!

Bit of a 'brown trouser' day ahead, eh?

Beautiful when she's finished, but again, I wouldn't want the maintenance.

Indeed they could. :)

Truth about wooden boats, outside of how gorgeous they are, is that you spend more time maintaining them than sailing them. And that particular peep above has better things to do.

Teredo

This dried specimen of Teredo navalis was extracted from the wood and the calcareous tunnel that originally surrounded it and curled into a circle artificially. The two valves of the shell are the white structures at the anterior end; they are used to dig the tunnel in the wood.

"The Sparky Channel". Thanks Rob.

It's worth noting however, that when dealing with high energy electricity, sparks are not a nice thing (tm) and should be avoided.
