As examples of our work, here are some photos taken during some recent projects.


  • 13′ 6″ Glued plywood clinker centre board dinghy “Tammie Norrie” with traditional lug rig.
  • Designed by Ian Oughtred.
  • Built by John Harris in 2008 at the Boat Building Academy, Lyme Regis.
  • The design is based on a 19th century ship’s boat, with traditional lines.
  • The boat sails well, rows well and can take a small outboard. It comfortably carries two or three and is stable and safe, with built in buoyancy – ideal for trailer sailing and exploring estuaries, creeks and inland waters.

  • Capable of carrying up to 185 lbs. Low maintenance hull, easily stored and transported and suitable for sheltered waters.
