Harry Bryan’s wonderful marine railway

Harry Bryan's marine railway

I love the ingenuity of this – ingenuity that solves a problem that happily we never have in Kent…

Read about the remarkable Harry Bryan and his designs and boatbuilding.

I picked up this video via the wonderful Duckworksmagazine, which I don’t get around to boosting nearly as often as I should.

The BBA gets a new website

BBA website

The Boat Building Academy folks down at Lyme are proud of their new website, and promises much more regular photos on the build diaries.

I hope they don’t get glue on their precious cameras!

The new website has improved boat pages. See the current student builds and latest boats launched here, and there’s an archive of boats built since September 2006 here.

There’s a useful page about what BBA students go on to do after their courses here
and a collection of their testimonials about the teaching here.

There’s also a press page, and news and events pages.

Now all the BBA folks have to is keep it up to date… Hopefully with a new website with a modern back end it should be easy. Certainly there will be plenty to post with all those boat building projects going on.
