Concentrating on high quality craftsmanship the workshop can take boats up to 25ft in length.
In addition to boat building Colin is a fully insured marine surveyor and consultant specialising in wooden boats. As well as pre-purchase and insurance surveys, he is frequently commissioned to provide advice on all aspects of wooden boat ownership.
When time permits Colin writes for WaterCraft Magazine, runs practical courses at The Boat Building Academy in Lyme Regis and at the Sylva Foundation Wood Centre where his workshop is based.
We are bringing together the interested and like-minded, the curious and the knowledgeable, to enjoy a few days of good company in a perfect setting.
The theme for this weekend is ‘Ensuring the future for boats made of wood’. We will be surrounded by beautiful boats, old and new, confirming the enduring relevance of a sustainable, long-lasting boatbuilding material – wood.
Although there are no courses planned at the moment keep your eye on this space for future dates.
