2012 SMUHA Galley Building
Work on constructing the 2012 galley started on Monday 5th September 2011 and was complete by the 20th February 2012. David Smith (2010 Jarl) was the galley foreman this year, Stewart Tomlinson expertly painted the wood grain effect on the galley boards with Bobby Halcrow and Alma Stove painting the rest of the galley. Once again the galley builders and Guizer Jarl would like to thank Ness Boating club for the continued use of their boat shed for the building of the galley. Without these facilities we would be a lot worse off
