Welcome to Paul’s Boatshed.
I have been designing, building, repairing and restoring small boats for over 35 years now through my business STANLEY SmallCraft. Over those years I have kept back some of my designs that I have built for us to use here, for customers as a one off build or just a new design that never got finished and never made it to the stock designs. From one of those, I ended up with three of my personal favourites based on one canoe design from which I got two canoes and a dinghy – the Fairlight design which includes my personal favourite, the sailing canoe.
The Fairlight Sailing Canoe, the Fairlight Open Canoe and the Fairlight Dinghy.
