    Default Another GIS in Poland

    Yes Guys, it is my one, which is building with my friend Bartek, who is co-owner of this. The assembly works of the hull got a lot of support from my girlfriend. There is an album with photos: https://goo.gl/photos/VEZXxiLRXuXVHz3g9

    More info you can see there: https://www.facebook.com/groups/Goat...Skiff/?fref=ts

    Looking good so far. I'd imagine you'll be in the water before summer's end.

    Congratulations Robert, it looks fantastic. I haven't touched mine over winter. I just need rigging, a sail, rudder hardware and trailer. Same list as months ago but it's been too wet and cold and I lost interest. With Spring now here I really need to crack on and sort my GIS out. Once again, well done!

    I had had to look up "uitwaaien" - a walk in the wind, breath of fresh air - does that sound about right? I love it.

    Thank you so much! And best wishes to you and your build!

    Links to the two photo albums from last weekend - ghosting in light air and a lot of noise and wavy by scooters and speedboats:

    Yes, "uitwaaien" is a Dutch verb and it means: "to take a brief break in the countryside to clear ones head" or "a walk in the wind, breath of fresh air" as you described above, or so. We really like it and think it fits the character of GIS and its usage.

    Nice job. That colour really suits it. As does the name.
    You know you're making progress when there's sawdust in your coffee.
