It was almost sink or swim in Lyme Regis today as a group of boat builders with little experience put the boats they'd created on the water for the first time. A large crowd watched as the students from the town's boat building academy marked the end of their course with a mass launch.
The boats are designed and built by the students, many of whom have little or no woodworking experience before they start the course. Hundreds of hours of planing, chiselling, stretching and shaping have taken place in the workshop.


Some students are looking for a new career or a change of direction knowing the skills they’ll learn are in short supply in the industry. Get insight into and practical experience of the construction and repair of traditional clinker and carvel built craft. The design for the 15′ cedar strip, glass sheathed Prospector Ranger canoe came from Canoecraft.
