After four months of construction, AOD No.26 was launched at Axmouth on Friday 2nd June – just in time for the Platinum Jubilee AOD Fleet Review.
The launching took the form of a traditional ceremony with Father Steven, Vicar of Colyton officiating; following which Iain lowered her into the water, christening her Avocet. James has produced a truly lovely boat, his workmanship is outstanding, very much with an eye for detail.
Avocet took to the water without leaking a drop, she was quickly rigged and had her first sail on the Axe. With commissioning trials completed; Iain pronounced himself exceptionally pleased with his new boat!
