    Hi, I was wondering if anyone can help me? I've been a Cabinet Maker/ Bench Joiner since graduating college in 2002. I am also a graduate of the Northwest School of Wooden Boatbuilding in WA USA (class 07). Basically I'm looking for opportunities in traditional wooden boatbuilding and restoration. I have a particular interest in clinker built and traditional lake craft. Saying that I'm open to all opportunities that have a bias towards traditionally built boats. I'm located in the UK but willing to relocate anywhere worldwide.

    Any opportunities would be muchly appreciated.

    You have more opportunities in the UK and northern Europe than in the USA. I have worked in both areas. Europeans still own a large percentage of wooden boats that are well maintained. Where do you live?
