About Rescue Wooden Boats

We are passionate about conserving maritime heritage. We restore examples of working wooden boats, tell their stories and those of the last generation of seafaring communities to use them through film and photos, show the crafts and skills used and actively involve people, especially young people, in learning about all this. 

You can do this here on our website, or visit our Maritime Heritage Centre in Stiffkey, Norfolk, NR23 1QF. Do get involved with what we do.

Take a look at the progress on Harvester here.
