Cornish Pilot Gigs & Four-Oared Gigs

Made to CPGA & CFOGA specifications

Continuing the family tradition

Wooden boats run in our family’s blood and the tradition was instilled in us at a young age.

I still use some of my dad’s tools and I often wonder what he would be saying while I’m building gigs (he’d probably be telling me I’m doing it all wrong!). I’m passionate about getting every aspect of every gig as perfect as it can be.

I keep striving for the best standards and traditions in gig building and I purposefully include as much of the style associated with the Bird boats as possible – traditions that have been handed down through many generations.

I now supply Cornish Four-Oared Gigs in semi-kit form, for use at boatbuilding schools and for community build projects – email kernowboats@gmail.com for more details.

Any questions?
