Heap of wooden boats being built at the Duckflat Autumn School


I am helping with the teaching in a ten day boatbuilding school in Adelaide Australia.

10 boats 12 students – all off to a flying start.

Most are from interstate. Varying levels of skill. Most haven’t built a boat before. A couple have woodwork or home renovation skills.

I will post more info here a bit later. Most boats are Oughtred – one Storer Eureka, a Lillistone Pheonix III and a beautiful Liz Rowing scull.

The last is like a bit of jewellery.

It is well worth seeing – goes until Thursday or Friday next week – visits welcome 9 to 4 (so we have time to tidy up before and after. We are in South Australia
25 Secker Rd Mt Barker (about a 35 minute drive from the city).

Boatbuilder heaven.

Here is the photo bucket

I’ll add a lot more each day and will gradually add some comments.
