Marcus Lewis builds a Mayflower dinghy

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.

It’s all going on in Cornwall; read all about it here¬†and here. My thanks to the Boat Building Academy for leading me to this one!
