St Mawes One designs were designed and built by Frank Peters at Freshwater boatyard in St Mawes, and over the years from 1923 – 1964 thirty three boats were built. We have been building and repairing wooden boats for over 40 years during that time we have built up good working relationships with suppliers of all of the different materials used in modern and traditional boat building.
Located near Nelson BC, Our 20+ Years of experience gives our clients access to efficient, and meticulous attention to detail. Clinker building is a method of constructing hulls of boats by fixing wooden planks to each other so that the planks overlap along their edges. The technique was developed in northern Europe and was a method of construction favoured by the Vikings for their longboats being quick to construct, easy to repair and light enough to row.
David’s Ben Nevis ChallengeDavid has Haemochromatosis and is in training to complete a climb up Ben Nevis this coming August. The lads from the school have recently replaced a number of laminated frames aft of the solid part of the deck as this was most in danger of distorting as it had no support whatsoever.
After the war was over Warrior had a number of owners and travelled as far as the Mediterranean and the Devon resort of Torquay coming to rest in a traditional wooden boat yard on the South coast of England. And here she is after we have nearly completed the restoration, work almost ready to launch.
Made of mild steel and hot dip galvanised which bonds to the steel giving it a life expectancy of about 30 years.
With more than 20 years experience with marine engines, call us for tune ups, rebuilds, system overhauls, and troubleshooting. The clinker built method as used by the Vikings created a vessel which could twist and flex relative to the line length of the vessel, bow to stern giving it an advantage in North Atlantic rollers. The Clinker build today lends itself to lightweight watercraft providing that traditional wooden boat appearance. If he can't be found in his beloved boat shed you may spot him on the river rowing his boat 'Escape' to build up his stamina.


Here we undertook major structural repairs with much hull planking replaced and completely refitted her with a new deck house and internal joinery.
Saskia took the brunt of a Ribs Outboard propellor while on her moorings in a gale, and has suffered damage to four of her topside planks on the port side. They are ideal for the marine environment in a situation where you don't want to use a screw and the fastening will remain visible. 1912.This beautiful motor yacht was originally built as a naval pinnace in 1912 of double diagonal Mahogany on Oak frames. This happened with a large number of the smaller vessels because it would save fuel and get her there quicker but alas she never made it.
Another boat collided with her port side near the transom, and damaged the deck, rubbing strake and covering board.
They could almost be called coachbolts but they do not have a square section below the head. They have been cut by a person inserting the sheet steel into a guillotine by hand which accounts for the variation in nail width. Substantial changes had been made to create the quality finish required for a yacht which is how she went to Dunkirk.
Close to the beach she was dive bombed by German Stukas and suffered two near misses which served to crack ribs on both sides causing severe leaks and the crew to abandon ship. The head is then forged in another machine which beats the "Rose head" form into the crown prior to hot dip galvanising. Unfortunately she has more recently sustained such severe damage from a fire that the vessel was nearly lost to us altogether.
She was sold into private hands namely the Greiner family who used her as a gentlemans’ yacht until the second world war when, once again, Count Dracula saw action sailing from Ramsgate to Dunkirk where because of her power she was able to tow two 35 ft.


We believe there is only one manufacturer left in Europe making these square cut English pattern boat nails. I believe this to be the Hilfranor that belonged to Mr Douglas of the Douglas Aircraft Company who took his design team aboard her to brainstorm the conversion of the famous DC3 from a commercial airliner to a military plane when the Americans entered the war. He knew the value of this little ship as he had spent a number of months in hospital with wounds sustained on the beach before being brought home by a similar vessel.He renamed Falcon, "Alabama".
The four sided points are not cut in or machined, they are swaged or cast, it does seem that no two nails are absolutely identical (part of the attraction). We have been fortunate enough to find a stock of these in a store of a boatyard that has closed. It certainly is the boat that was shown as such in the television documentary "Planes that Changed the World".
Whilst still in naval hands in 1942 she was attached to Coastal Defence and served as a training vessel to teach navigation and ship handling to aspiring young Royal Naval cadets at HMS King Alfred.
They were bought for Admiralty work and are about 60 years old but still in perfect condition. Contact us for a total price if you wish more than one kilo and we will calculate a better  postage rate.
