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. 250 Laurie McGowan considered three different hull shapes when developing the concept for a home-buildable sit-on-top fishing kayak.
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.


Our history pages show some large vessels built in the past; but we tend to sway towards 25 feet and smaller nowadays – although we go where the work takes us. Current boats we have been commissioned to build are a 25' mahogany clinker weekender and a 16' Beer Lugger launch. The current Beer Lugger fleet consists of thirteen boats of which seven have been built or heavily modified by us.
The local fishing ports still boast many Mears clinker and carvel fishing boats still plying their trade everyday. We are definitely not born again boatbuilders, poets or dreamers, we have been in this industry a long time and love every second of the hard, satisfying work.The attraction of the Mears wooden boat is in their strength and longevity.


This makes them very strong and allows them to be beach launched day after day, year after year. We always use grown English oak knees, quarter knees, breasthooks and drop thwarts rather than laminating.
