 4th June ’16 – Beale Park Boat Show

A big thank you to all of you who took Beale park 2016the time to visit my stand this year and compliment me on the design and craftsmanship of the tender Bounty, shown here on display. Your generous feedback was appreciated and I thoroughly enjoyed discussing your requirements for contemporary boat designs.

Thanks also to my good friend Cliff who supported me over the 3 days, but a very special thank you go to those of you who bought plans!  I look forward to seeing photos of your boats under construction and once completed on the water.


10th May – Bounty Sea Trials

DSCN0781 v2

With an improvement in the weather and accompanied by friends Barry & Vaughan in their kayaks, we carried out further sea trials with Bounty. This time on the tidal river Medway with a 13 mile row from Allington lock to Chatham historic dockyard.

I had a dry comfortable row for about 5 hours giving me the chance to get to know Bounty properly. With plenty of leg room and a light hull rowing was easy, dry and safe. Good stability and plenty of space meant that I carried all the food and kit for my friends, it’s hard to keep things dry in a kayak!



14th April ’16 – “Pic-Nic” Design Complete

Pic-Nic is a tough 16ft day boat with a good strong construction and a clean stylish appearance. There is plenty of stowage space for food & drink, boat gear and fishing nets. Pic-Nic is well suited for cruising your favourite stretch of sheltered water.

An outboard is hidden beneath the lifebuoy on the aft deck, making engine installation simple, economic and pleasing to the eye. Plans for Pic-Nic are now available and if required I can also supply full size Mylar templates for the frames.
