This is one hobby that I like, we get together a couple of times a week with like minded people to make wooden boats, so far there have been in excess o over 60 kayaks and canoes that have been constructed at “Rays” workshop for the “Plywood Pirates” as long as you have grey hair you are welcome, seriously we have a great time building and helping each other, with regular outings and camps away, ‘The Gorge and Iluka, two of the most popular, we have explored all the local creeks and waterways, there is some very good boat builders in our group. If you have an interesting story about building boats, or some tips we would be glad to here from you. goldyII
