Start of restoration of Nanw

Nanw is a stoutly built 15' rowing and outboard dinghy built in Penarth sometime after 1959. She has been kicking around in Pembrokeshire for quite a while and has had some seriously bodged repairs in recent years that were clearly done by someone not used to traditional construction.
The coating of brown paint is a result of being used as a film prop, possibly we assume, in the making of the Robin Hood movie starring Russell Crowe that had scenes shot at Freshwater West here in Pembrokeshire in the summer of  2009.
