We came across this place by accident whilst travelling from Hobart and just had to stop and have a look.
Boat building from basics incorporating the native, protected Huon Pine this centre offers the experience for anybody from a complete beginner to sponsor and build their own designed boat under expert tuition using traditional skills.
As an amateur woodworker and sailor I wish I lived closer and had the finances to undertake up to a years break to become almost a modern day Noah! A handmade boat on the Solent would be a feat and something to behold.
A very memorable experience and I wear my purchase woollen beanie hat with pride and constatntly admire the small Houn Pine token I returned home with.
Well worth the visit and my thanks to the more than friendly staff on hand to explain everything.
