When we first began building Banyandah in 1970, finding good ideas and ways to do boatie things was more difficult than actually doing the work. If we could see it, we could build it.
A lot of miles have slipped past since launching Banyandah in 1973, and we have honed our skills building vessels for others as well as rebuilding our own vessel from a bare hull.

Fine comment sir as the boat the lad just bought can sail anywhere ones wishes to go!
You have made a wise investment Steve. Both in buying our Practical book and in your buying a modest vessel to try your “wings.” If ever you have a question, email us, we’ll be pleased to assist all we can. Cheers, J&J
I’m pretty new to sailing, having only crewed a bit before on a 30-footer. I’ve now gone mad and bought a 22-footer (Kestrel 22 from around 1972…ish). I’m living aboard through the start of an English winter, and loving it. Mind you, I haven’t yet actually ventured out of the marina where she was delivered for me…
I’m hoping your book will give me some really useful tips on making and mending, of which there’s quite a lot to be done around here! <:^)
