    Default Any DIY Boat Builders aroud London UK?

    Hey there,

    I was wondering if anyone meandering around on this wonderful forum happens to be building a boat around London as I am very tentatively
    putting out my feelers about starting a build (some day) (maybe).

    Cheers!

    Welcome, Arthur. Lots of builders in the UK. You should not have any trouble finding some interest.
    What kind of boat are you thinking of building? Sail? Power?

    Haha ... thanks for the welcome Oldad ...


    I'm basically just deliriously dreaming of building a Buzzards Bay 15 and trying to make a good list of all the reasons why this is pure madness and impossible, so
    I can bury the idea and keep looking at pictures while making smoking pipes instead

    Of course I won't attempt any such thing. In London I would probably struggle to find the space to build a nutshell pram which I could afford.
    But building a scale model and lofting the plans and all that stuff is still fun enough.

    Welcome
    Not London but Kent, not currently building anything boat related either.
    Plenty of others on here doing stuff though.
    There's always volunteering on the bigger boats as well. Irene is currently laid up for winter down in Cornwall, always looking for help on their Facebook page.
    Cheers

    You've come to the wrong place.
