Coracles are probably the second form of manufacturered transportation - after canoes. Any culture that figured out how to weave baskets usually figured out how to make coracles.

Cheap, light, easyy to make - while the version we are making are only solo boats, we are sure they will help get lots of people on the water.

The coracles - and paddles - we are making are Severn-Ironbridge coracles based on an interpretation by Hannu Vartiala, who has a simply brilliant web page chock full of fun designs: http://koti.kapsi.fi/hvartial/
