We’re promised boats ranging from dinghies and dayboats to cruisers and narrowboats, traditional boatbuilding crafts, free river trips and and opportunities to try out a range of boats.

In fact it sounds just like previous Beale Park Boat Shows – and if it is like them, it’ll be an interesting, busy and entertaining day out. The picture tells you what to expect, I’m quite sure!

Just to give you a foretaste, here is a handful of links to exhibitors that might interest readers of www.intheboatshed.net

Just about everyone who comes to these pages is some kind of boat nut, and I’m a boat nut too. I’d like to make this weblog as interesting and useful to us all as possible, and I want to fill it with news and photographs about:

•Projects about old boats, historic boats, traditionally-built boats, and traditionally-derived boats.

•Boating history and traditions.

•The skills involved, the craftsmen and the available training.

So, whether you own these kinds of boats, work on them, sell them, build them, paint or photograph them, write about their history, design them, run a club or organise events, or collect old songs and stories connected with them – if you would like to bring your projects to the attention of a wider public, email me now at gmatkin@gmail.com!
