Learn about the history of boat building and water transport. Marvel at the beauty of the local timbers – some of the finest boat building materials in the world. Examine tools and maritime artifacts: adzes, augurs, draw-knives, caulking irons, roving dollies and the rest. Drink in the atmosphere of the boat building school workshops – the sounds of the activity, the smells of the timber and glues, the gleam of old and treasured tools, the satisfaction of old skills learned anew. Watch the various stages in the creation of real boats in precious timbers, from lofting to launching.
