Building a Cedar Strip Handliner Rowboat
January - March 2015: A cedar strip version of the Hubert Evans handliner was built at the Sarah Wray Hall under the guidance of boatbuilder Rick Crook of Oyster Bay Boats. The boat plans are based on lines from the Sunshine Coast Museum & Archives in Gibsons Landing. The finished boat will be the start of the Society’s small boat livery in the harbour.

The video below provides an inside look at our boatbuilding classes with Rick Crook. The finished boat will become part of the small heritage boat livery we hope to host on Hotel Lake to enable people in our community and visitors to have the experience of rowing a replica of the historic person-powered boats that were used in the area.
