- Derek Williams
In 1975 my family and I came to Canada, we landed in Nova Scotia, Cape Breton to be precise, there I worked for Cabotcraft Industries and participated in the production of the Cabot 36 a sail boat. Alas the company closed for lack of sales, I was in the middle of building my own house and jobs were scarce so I started a small woodworking business with a partner, and built houses, kitchen cabinets and other renovations.
In the early 80ís we moved to British Columbia, work in the local yards was plentiful and when one project came to an end there was another starting somewhere else, I have worked on sail and power boats large and small. In the late 80ís I met Ken and we were often working side by side in various boat companies, then in 2000 we formed Anglo Marine.
Our projects are varied from small jobs to complete re-fits, but they all have one thing in common, they all involve wood which is good because I love the look of it, the feel of it, and for the most part the smell of it.
In 2008 Ken and I decided to start building small rowing craft of our own, although I would like them to be 100% wood, we felt it involved too much maintenance for the future owner, so we decided to produce our boats using a wood/epoxy composite method. This method also affords us to build many different designs without the cost of producing and storing moulds. Our shop can accommodate new builds up to 25ft.
