Notes on DIY Wooden Boat Building, Restoration and Maintenance.
Introduction

DIY Wood Boat is a website dedicated to helping, encouraging and celebrating all DIY Wooden Boat enthusiasts everywhere.

And now incorporating the brand new DIY Wood Boat Club.

The aim is to make it;

  • Easy to find the advice and tips to make your wooden boat project a success.
  • Whether you are restoring a wooden boat or building from scratch.
  • Save you time searching for the information you need.
  • And hopefully inspire you to get started on that dream wooden boat project.

I've even included some Budget Boating Tips from the budget boating expert, my Uncle Charlie.

And some advice on boat navigation and boat handling for the beginner.
