let this video load up in HD and watch full screen – it’s a beautiful video and some gorgeous wooden boats.

    Looks great, have always wanted to go to Tasmania for some reason. Also more boats should have pianos in them, very civilised.

      JP and Max, agreed on the piano – I thought it was a nice touch.

      But my back still remembers moving a few pianos – that seems like a lot of weight for a small boat!!

    Thanks for giving me a heads up. Beautiful video but I wonder where all the small wooden dinghies are, particularly of Australian design – they have a tremendous catalog of plywood racing classes.
