I longed for something that I could carry to the sea by myself, row to fishing spots and throw in a line.
Alongside the kits, they supply constant mentor support of telephone advice seeing customers through every stage of the build, sometimes only to assure them that they are doing things right. The range is growing steadily by four or five a year and they offer the cutting of one-off designs for customers determined to see their own ideas come to life. This is how I came to be standing in front of six panels of  Lloyds approved, BS1088, Ockoume plywood with double-face veneers in a tiny village in the Lake District. Once the seats were glued and laid down to dry we drilled the bottom panel and tied it to the side panels and the transom with tiny cable ties. Before it had dried we placed strips of twill weave glass fabric over it  and painted  epoxy resin on top. As I was going to be dragging it along a shingle beach, strakes were considered, we talked of possibly putting in two extra skegs or even a strip of metal along the central one.

It is a twin-skin fibreglass converted rowing boat that weighs as much as a church and has a tramp living underneath it. As Classic Boat needed an occasional work boat to take photos from and pop on the roof of a car, we started looking around for something suitable that we could realistically share.
In the centre of their business are  their computer-guided, pre-cut, pre-drilled and pre-machined wooden boat kits. Their designs range widely from canoes and kayaks to a small cabin cruiser and cater for the entire spectrum of practical ability. They also offer on-the-spot tuition, patiently guiding fledgeling boatbuilders through each step of their projects.
Due to the shape of the sides this gave the bottom of the boat a satisfyingly curved rocker. This makes the bond stronger than the boat itself – handy if you are based on Hove beach.  While we were working we discussed (among many other things)  how I was going to use the boat.


I was going to use a 5hp engine so Phil rustled up and extra mahogany engine plate for the outside of the transom. I call it Der Schweinhund and it’s a leaky cumbersome lump that, when upside down looks as though it has beached itself and is bloating in the sun. They send these totally complete kits  from their workshop to enthusiasts all over the world. We started with the seats and a short lesson about epoxy resin and its use with silica and wood flour. Mixing the epoxy with the wood flour and silica to the consistency of mustard gives it a super strong structural bond which we filleted down all the sides of the panels so far. Although the kit is standard, the choices and possibilities are endless, leaving room for constant bespoke invention.
