Southampton Boat Show

The Boat Building Academy undertook two demonstration builds, one traditional wood and one modern wood, as part of the Wooden Boatbuilders’ Trade Association area at the 2013 Southampton International Boat Show.  The graduates who staffed the stand and completed the builds said that people were so interested in the wooden boat building process and how they learnt the skills that the time spent actually working on the boats (designed by Instructor Justin Adkin) was negligible.
