Completed Ke Pau

Christmas Day saw a very successful launch of my first boat build - the Ke Pau for my 4 yr old son. It was enjoyed by many, and over the coming days will be in the water most days.

What a fantastic feeling it was to launch a boat you have built!

Hi all,

Seems there are a few members close by! I live in Adelaide, am lucky enough to have a small houseboat in Murbko (between Morgan and Blanchtown), and have a family shack at Goolwa.

We will be attending the Wooden Boat Festival in Goolwa next year, any others attending?

Cheers!
