Canal Boat - - The Boat Test -

When we say this is Jem Boats’ first boat, that’s only partly true. It’s the first one Joe Miller has built from scratch, but he’d pre­vi­ously bought an old boat which needed a com­plete re­fit, gut­ted it, and started again.

The money from sell­ing that boat al­lowed him to set up his own join­ery work­shop, equipped with ev­ery­thing he needed for wood work­ing. When he’s not build­ing boats, Joe does all sorts of other join­ery work, in­clud­ing mak­ing fur­ni­ture, build­ing kitchens, fit­ting out camper vans and do­ing shop­fit­ting.

His aim is to win a com­mis­sion to build a boat to a cus­tomer’s spec­i­fi­ca­tions.
