Materials & Cheap Boating
THIS IS simply a page for materials and ideas and things I've used. Some are original, I think, and some aren't. For polytarp sail info, click on The Cheap Page, above, and follow your nose.

From our UK Correspondent, Nigel Cameron, sources for bamboo spars:
- Jacobs, Young & Westbury Ltd.
- Bridge Road
- Haywards Heath
"They have a price list with bamboo suitable for sizable dinghy spars. I had a list somewhere & have seen their name mentioned in a couple of boating articles. Also
- The Woodbridge Boatstore
- Lime Kiln Quay
- Suffolk IP12 1BD
include bamboo for spars in their extensive trad. boating catalogue, with brief comments on its use."
