Tom and Lorraine Owen were no beginners at boat building when they set out on this mammoth project in 2015, but with a combined age of more than 120 years they certainly exceeded all expectations with an exceptional build.
This is the account of two pensioners building a wooden boat but it is also the tale of life's many adventures. It provides valuable lessons on pushing the bounds, keeping going when things don't go as expected and trying not to kill yourself in the process.
'One of the most fascinating stories I've covered in my journalistic career and a genuinely remarkable accomplishment.' Nick Burnham - Motor Boat and Yachting.
