Fowey boatbuilder Marcus Lewis builds a Mayflower dinghy.

I don’t know how I missed this before – it might have been because the Traditional Maritime Skills people and I have been rather slow to make a connection. Still, they say say they’ve put me on their mailing list now.

They have an excellent set of videos on Youtube, including another timelapse presentation, this time of the building of the Grayhound.

  1. My Dad used to own and race M5 at Mayflower sailing club in Plymouth. They used to have a winch to get the trailers up and down the steep slipway – and on more than one occasion the launch was rather quicker than planned when the rope slipped off!
