    Dear Fellow Boat builders:

    For more than 20 years I traveled the country teaching boat building in six-day classes. I am interested in re-connecting with the students of these classes (and my former apprentices from my previous career as a furniture maker). In 2003, my apartment was looted and all the records and photographs (more than 3000) were stolen and have never been recovered.

    I'd like to put together a few of these photos again. So if you have photos or other materials (including your recollections) please consider being in touch. You can contact me at and at the same time, copy my son, Richard Watts at

    Hoping to hear from you!

    -- Simon

    P.S. I'm going on 88 so don't wait too long.

    P.P.S. You can see some of my plans and boat designs here.
