Wooden boats

There’s so much technology involved in making wooden boats. Not apps, not new materials, just years and years of development by generations of craftsmen exercising their ingenuity and knowledge. The results are beautiful, as you’ll all be able to see when the 116-year old Baden Powell cockling boat comes back to King’s Lynn in September 2016. Keep an eye on the Purfleet, by the Custom House. The Baden Powell will be there all winter being trimmed for sea. Then out into the River Great Ouse next summer where you will be able to board her and experience what it is like to sail along the town’s historic waterfront.
