Build a boat!
A remarkable project to build a wooden skiff under the tutorage of a professional boat builder and his team. In a single day.
The project would be to build a skiff that would be suitable to be entered into the UK Traditional Boat Championship of The Great River Race, London’s River Marathon. A spectacular boat race up the Thames that attracts over 300 crews from all over the World. This year the event takes place on Saturday 27th September.
John’s Boat Works at Lots Ait is situated on an island in the river Thames between Kew Gardens and Brentford. An Important part of London’s commercial boating history. It was one of the last tidal boat yards to be closed in the early 1970s. Now home to The Thames and General Lighterage Company
Split into four work parties, you would be set the task of making a skiff in a day.
A skiff is a hand crafted wooden racing boat that takes four crew ,a cox and a passenger. The project would see each group work on different elements of the boat, including making oars . The full day activity would involve team work, planning, design, construction.
At the end of the event, your company would own a boat that would require storing and of course a team to race it in the Great Thames River race. There would need to be a longer term commitment to this project and plenty of great PR opportunities.
