In my hunt for what boat for me and any boatbuilding how to information, I’ve collected quiet a few links to other sites. Here is a bit of a list, in no particular order.

Francois Vivier
Designer of the Stirven

Frédéric MOUCHY
Builder of Linotte, STIR VEN

Rick Corless

Sciliy Isle Pilot Cutters
The kinda boat I would love to have one day

Sundowner Diaries
I followed this build from start to finish. An unbelievable and sad end to one man’s dream.
The disaster

Timothy C. Lacke
Not wooden boats but this guy is a perfectionist.

Building a 6-Metre S&S Cherokee
Very fancy, wish I had a workspace like this one

C.A. Thayer Restoration

Serious bits of timber in this restoration

Scruffie Marine
I considered one of these boats for awhile

Gartside Boats
I really like these boats. This link is a how-to do leather on oars.

Whipping Rope Ends
Before watching this video I had no idea how to do this. I’ve since used these techniques everywhere including lashing my Oar Bulls to the oars.
Whipping Rope How to Video

Cape Cutter 21
I seriously considered this boat

The Wooden Boatshop – Couta Boats
To expensive for me, but I love these boats. These are the most famous traditional Aussie fishing boats sailed, on Port Phillip Bay where I live

Wooden Boat Forum

John Welsford Small Craft Design
I like these boats and would have considered a Pathfinder if it was a bit bigger

Norwalk Island Sharpies
I semi considered one of these but, I really wanted an open boat with lots of ropes to play with. Some people have an issue with this but I like lots to do when I go sailing. Still I think they are nice boats all the same.


  1. After I originally left a comment I seem to have clicked the
    -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now every time a comment is added I get four emails with the exact same comment.
    There has to be a means you are able to remove me from that service?
    Thanks a lot!
