Coracle build at Cranbourne Technology Centre

07 May 2012

"I've been interested in coracles since I can remember, in fact I built one in the early seventies with a view to going down the Thames, but my expedition partner pulled out and that was that for about 35 years. However last year I attended a coracle building course with the Nautical Archaeology Society at the Cranbourne Ancient Technology Centre and built my own Bronze age style boat, very similar to my own design from years ago. Anyone fancy completing that trip down the Thames?"
