With fond memories of Oyster's freighter canoe photo-build of winter 2011-2012, this build, using original materials, techniques, and bronze age tools, of a 50', 5 ton replica of a 4000 year old Cornish original, struck me as appropriate for this forum. The project is well documented by a number of sites, including YOUTUBE videos. It's about ready for launch. Check it out on the sponsoring group's FACEBOOK page:
Lots of pictures. All built from two massive oak logs. No metal. Sewn together. Very cool.
