Seax Gig Hits the Water

Over in Essex, the Seax gig that has been taking shape over the last few months has hit the water. Designer and builder Keith Webster says it take a little while to acclimatise to but is very quick. She has a lot of features I really like, such as decks fore and aft and a nice wooden garboard to add a bit of class. Can't wait to give it a whirl...

Seax?

Wait.

I thought you said…

Oh. Never mind.

Seax, the single edged Saxon knife or sword, the coat of arms of Essex features three notched Seaxes.
Always makes people look twice!
