Biography:
The Slipway Co-operative, based in the historic Underfall Yard in Bristol, takes on every conceivable job that involves wood and boats, whether it be to make the intricate shapes of the stern windows of the SS Great Britain, or build a new simple plywood dingy or a fully fledged 32’ Cornish Pilot Gig. And that is apart from all general maintenance and repair jobs, big and small, that you can’t or don’t want to do yourself. The slipway takes boats up to 100’ long and 180 tons, there are pontoon berths and an undercover workshop for boats up to 60’.
