No I won’t be marching up and down with a placard shouting. I’ve been selected by the Crafts Council of Ireland to demonstrate rope fender making at this years Waterford Tallships Festival on Thursday the 30th of June and Friday the 1st of July from 11am to 8pm at the craft village near the quays.
Come on down for a chat and learn a great skill for protecting your boat and using up old rope. It’s set to be a great few days with lots to see and do and the weather looks like it might even co-operate.
I’m also going to be making a half hull model of an 1891 22 foot 2 horsepower petrol launch pictured above. I want to see what she’ll look like in the round as a super efficient boat like this would be perfect as a family or dayboat for inland and inshore work.
