The project is predominantly run by volunteers who offer a wealth of experience in boat building, project management, archaeology, history and beyond, but as the project increases in size we will be ready to welcome more people into the team.

If you have time to spare and would like to be involved by helping behind the scenes with the smooth running of the project or have the skills to help with the building process, we would like to hear from you. A project of this size is reliant on volunteers to provide expertise in everything from health and safety to sharpening tools and from book keeping to providing demonstrations and tours, so if you have been involved in anything like this or have transferable work skills please get in contact by emailing

New volunteers will be contacted in the first instance for an informal chat before needing to make any commitment.
