How To: Building a sustainable future: hand-crafting your very own boat
Sustainable living is the future. This pair of boat-builders, Simon and Cat Holman, wanted to live sustainably by fishing locally, after hand-crafting their very own boat.
Simon and Cat showed that not only is it achievable, it is also feasible even with a limited space – provided the right materials are available. By using epoxy coating and epoxy to fillet and with help from Hamish Cook at West System International, they were able to reap fantastic results. And in a considerably small amount of time too.
The couple proved that, with grit and determination, the dream of building your own boat and living a sustainable lifestyle can indeed become a reality. See how they did it here: https://teachmanfish.wordpress.com/2012/04/07/assembling-frames/
