Hely

I built her in Hamina at Etelä-Kymenlaakso Vocational College (Ekami) for scholarly thesis during October 2012- May 2013. The boat was built from a half-model. The half-model was found in 1912 at Sommers. It is an islet and a lighthouse in the eastern part of the Gulf of Finland, and arm of the Baltic Sea, desiner unknown. She is a double-ender, lapstrake pine planking over ash frames. The keel is made from iroko, spars are spruce. I sew the sail at home by myself from canvas.
