Biography
My work encompasses both traditional and modern methods of wooden boat building. New boats are custom-built (and sometimes custom-designed) to order. I also carry out restoration, repair and maintenance, and do occasional design and consultancy. Most of my recent work has been traditional clinker or clinker plywood boat building, making sailing and rowing craft. I concentrate on smaller craft, day boats, dinghies and canoes - the largest boat built here being about 25 ft LOA.

I work single-handed, with occasional sub-contract help. I originally started out on Osea Island on the River Blackwater in 1982, after 4 years with Arthur Holt Ltd at Heybridge Basin, near Maldon, Essex. I'm active on the water in various boats, and interested in unusual and innovative design.
