Started working life as an apprentice in Boat building concurrently followed a course in Part time Architecture, 4 years.
Worked for large woodworking companies for next 3 years.
Got back to Yachts and boat Building, Started off in partnership - woodworking Company - "Touchwood Enterprise". Later,
Stared off on my own -"The Workshop". Did quite well till Civil war broke out.
Went to Oman - Built the largest boat 75 ft (any vessel larger than 75ft was considered a ship) I made it a foot shorter. (120Tons) shall send pictures soon. (4 years.)
Went to Maldives, as manager, of Boat yard. 1 year. (Lousy food). Back home started "The Yard" making my own Bass boat, large Plug for Government outfit (Not paid in full yet)
Made 15 ft Model - last project. Meanwhile I sail, go angling, Clay pigeon and silhouette shooting.
At present looking out for a partner or collaborator to export wood based items
I hope I could teach boat-building and woodwork before too long, I've got to part with everything I have learnt, before it's all lost in this part of the world.
