For all with the desire to enjoy life afloat
Simply explained with
over 200 photos and diagrams
Back in 1970, when we first began building Banyandah, 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, and one book that we treasured was Alan Lucas’ “Just Cruising”
A lot of miles have slipped past since launching Banyandah in 1973.
We honed our skills until we were competent enough to actually build vessels for others and be paid handsomely for our labours. For two decades we built quality cabinetry with smart joinery and lovely clear finishes.
Jude has been documenting the many very workable features of Banyandah and she has worked diligently to bring them to you.
In Practical Boat Bits and Tips are the simplest and best ideas, illustrated in photographs, diagrams and her words. Best take her word, she’s the one keeping Banyandah in top shape.
Great reading guys, lives well spent, KUDOS to your family.
On the page Bowsprit we notice a photo of jack cleaning your anchor – it has been our experience of many years that a swivel on the anchor alleviates the twisted chain and thus lessens the risk of the chain breaking. Again thank you for your website it is very informative. Safe sailing.
