I made this coracle from some plumbing materials I found in a skip. Building the frame was really pretty easy. It is made from ‘Floplast’ PVCU overflow pipe – it’s very easy to work – just heat it with a heat gun or hot water. I based the design on a willow coracle that I had.
Safety on the water
The Society has published guidelines which we strongly recommend are followed by those who go out on the water. These are available to download below
In addition to these safety guidelines, we strongly advise you make yourself aware of the dangers of water quality, in particular Weil's Disease. For more information on Weil's Disease, please visit the British Canoe Union website (link will open in a new window.
