Peter Laidlaw

Peter Laidlaw is the classic tale of “one who came to Tasmania to build a wooden boat and stayed”.  25 years later, he teaches traditional wooden boat building, repairs and restores wooden boats.  Headquartered at the Wooden Boat Centre in Franklin, Tasmania, Peter is President of the Living Boat Trust.

His love of traditional wooden boats, the Tasmanian Special Timbers and their variety of characteristics and uses within boats is strengthened by his view of timber as the “ultimate renewable resource” the thousands of years of wooden boat building and their use in exploration, trade and contribution to Tasmania.
