Ollie Reed built this 10ft clinker dinghy while on the Boat Building Academy’s38-week course over the past winter and spring. While working as a labourer building building oak barns, houses and doing house repairs, he decided to do the BBA’s eight-week woodworking skills course to learn more about this kind of work – and while doing that was so impressed with what he saw going on with the 38-week long boatbuilding course that he decided to make it his next move. Ollie felt the long course would take his skills to a higher level and open new doors – and that the skills involved in boat-building would be transferable to all sorts of things and offer a variety of opportunities in the long term. With the end of the course nearing, Ollie decided that boat building is the industry in which he would like to work, and is now working locally while looking for a job in a traditional boat yard. Tim is currently building timber-framed houses in the Lyme area and playing with his band. Sacriledge no doubt but it seems a pity that Stuart Turner hardly improved on Evinrude's original 1911 outboard after 50 years. Intended as a comment on the post below about the 1961 launch with a 1.5 hp Stuart Turner, sorry.

Our Faversham-based friend Alan Thorne can help with boatbuilding projects - constructing to plans in very tidy stitch-and-glue or more traditional techniques.
Boat builder and historian Will Stirling has sent in these shots of his latest beautiful 9ft clinker dinghy – Will has a great eye for a photograph and these shots are up to his usual standard, even if it was a miserable day.
These dinghies are a regular product line for Devon-based Stirling & Son and should be better known. Will and his workmates had to cut hundreds of softwood sticks to place between the planks to allow the timber to season – softwood is chosen for the job because it does not stain.
By the way, Stirling & Son run twice-yearly courses during which students build their own 9ft traditional dinghy under the guidance of a skilled shipwright. For more posts relating to Stirling & Son boatbuilding projects and boat design work, click here.
Would make a good blog post to have a snapshot of all the colleges with their different emphases? Also could the 9ft be lengthened to say 12ft as this would IMHO make a much more useful boat? I think the Stirling's option would be interesting and would give you a very good idea about your aptitude for traditional boatbuilding, but I doubt it would amount to a re-training. The boat is ready to race, and comes complete with measurement certificate, trapeze and buoyancy bags, and of course is race-measured.


Tideway TW233 recently restored by Good Wood Boat will also be on show to promote the company’s traditional wooden boat repair, restoration and refinishing services, which now include a clinker boat varnish stripping service. It’s a replica of a dinghy called Barnacle belonging to instructor Mike Broome, and is built in mahogany with oak ribs and a mahogany fit-out. Try scrolling down, clicking on the 'older posts' button at the bottom of this page - or try the search gadget! This particular example is mahogany on oak with copper and bronze fastenings, spoon oars, with the name relief-cut with gold leaf.
The courses are part-time, running for three days a week for sixteen weeks, and cost ?3,500 including materials.
A single clinker dinghy presumably includes only the experiences involved in making that dinghy, whereas I know the courses include experience of a wider range of boat building techniques.
She is offered for sale at an ex-demonstrator price of ?14995 –  is ?3000 less than the price of a new Good Wood Boat Redwing of this specification.
