The first of this year's Bronze Age Boats is being built at Dover, Kent, England. Half size version of the excavated remains in the museum.

The two and a half years for the build reported is probably way out as one of the workers thinks it will be very much less

The full-size Ferriby boat is due to start in April at the Falmouth Maritime Museum.

What an embarrassment! Much like that large skin boat that kept twisting when launched.
I do wonder what the problem was. One difficulty might be soaking in water may not fill up gaps the way it would on a wooden clinker boat.

Just realised that as my current mini project is carving a wooden baler for my eventual boat. Wonder if I should offer one to both current Bronze Age Boat builds biggrin.gif
