Between us we are working on wooden boats number 4 and 5 5 and 6 in the last 5 years.  We spend more time building them than sailing them - but we love it when we do get them out on the water. 


August 2013: Updates on this site have just about stopped due to a lack of space - that doesn't mean that we have stopped building boats, just that we have trouble showing you pictures.  The Eureka Canoe was finished last summer and is painted PINK. (my 5 year old daughter's decision)  For various reasons we haven't had a chance to try it yet.  The Chebacco is getting nearer launch.  The cockpit is all but complete, the cabin structure is part built, the mainsail has been sewn using my mother in law's home sewing machine on my lounge-room floor. I used Sailcut CAD to design the sail shape.
When we get the chance we will work out how to get more free web space to show our creations.

"The desire to build a house is the tired wish of a man content thenceforward with a single anchorage. The desire to build a boat is the desire of youth, unwilling yet to accept the idea of a final resting place." -Arthur Ransome
