Greetings from Kallavesj’ 2016 fair!

Kallavesj’ 2016 fair was held on the first weekend of April in Kuopio, Finland and it was an opportunity to see our mahogany faced VENDIA marine plank. Niko-pulling boat was also present. It looked great since it had received the final varnish layers and the beautiful appeareance of mahogany really stood out.

Next to Niko-pulling boat was presented another boat made of VENDIA. It was a rowing boat made of pine faced VENDIA marine plank by Boatyard Ruotsalainen.

In addition to these boats a pine faced Niko-pulling boat was on view at Kuopio Adult Education Center’s section. That specific boat was built on the pilot course of Niko-pulling boat during January-Febuary in 2016. Niko-pulling boat has been designed as an easy boat model to build. Two boatbuilding courses have already been booked for the coming winter. More information about Niko-pulling boat model: venesuunnittelu@gmail.com

Scarf jointing of VENDIA marine plank

VENDIA marine plank is available in lengths of 2 600 mm and 3 000 mm. Scarf jointing is easy and simple way to lengthen a marine plank. We have got questions about how the scarf jointing can be made. Video about scarf jointing is now ready to watch. In the video, the designer and builder of Niko pulling boat Jarmo Häkkinen shows how the scarf jointing of VENDIA marine plank happens.
