Warren and Andrea Manthorne - Wooden Boat Building
Chair: Kirk Saint

Warren and Andrea Manthorne will tell us about the wooden ships and boats they are bulding in Upper Onslow at the Eye and Batten Wooden Boatworks. Warren and Andrea have lived in Truro for about 27 years. Warren is from the Eastern Shore of Nova Scotia (Seal Harbour, Guys. Co) and  Andrea is from St. John's NL. They have been building boats together for about 28 years and Warren has been building them since the young age of 13. Boat building has been in his family for at least 7 generations. 

You'll be surprised about the size of their operation right in our community.  Using traditional medhods, they are working on 2 schooners presently, their largest project is the 23-metre schooner Lena Blanche.
