Biography
Having worked in a number of boatyards I started out working on my own in 1982, the business became Henwood and Dean Boatbuilders when Robert Dean came on board for the first 6 years. The boatyard specialized in building, restoring and maintaining beautiful Thames launches and in 2016 I handed the yard over to Tony Knights and Dan Wood and returned to happily working on my own again.

I carry on the same high-quality work on wooden launches and boats on a smaller scale. I also work as a surveyor and consultant advising anyone buying, restoring or insuring wooden boats here in the UK and abroad. I teach boat finishing skills at the Boat Building Academy and occasionally run two-day courses at the Sylva Foundation on paddle making.

Lastly, I write a regular column for WaterCraft Magazine and have published a book, "Head, Heart, Hand, a boatbuilders story".
