A day’s boat building on Worthing beach

… from contributor Dave Watkins    

As part of the Last Fisherman Standing project, Sussex boatbuilder Ryan Kearley provided the opportunity to help restore an old wooden fishing boat. The main task was to steam ribs and fasten them to complete the base of the boat. Participants were able to learn about traditional boat building skills in Sussex.

The activity  took place on Worthing beach near the Artists’ Coast Cafe.

Boatbuilder Ryan Kearly is based at Barcombe.
