New Boatbuilding - Overview
Wooden boats can be made economically by those of us practiced in working quickly with a minimum of design and other administrative demands. I can integrate design and construction processes.
To optimise the properties of wood each type of construction requires a distinct approach, even though the end products often appear to be very similar, e.g. Traditional Clinker and Glued Clinker-Plywood hulls. We want to emphasize the beauty and hand-crafted nature of timber boats, whatever the construction. Even plywood craft of simple hull form like Banks Dories which can be purely utilitarian are fashioned in such a way as to project (at least some of) the warmth and quality of the hand-made wooden boat.
Boats may or may not be “CE” marked depending upon the exemptions given in the Recreational Craft Directive and customer choice.
