“Ben Harris  has been working with wood throughout the UK since the age of 15. First as assistant to a cabinet maker, then he developed his skills in furniture making, and his passion for wood and forestry by working in broadleaf woodlands. Later he tuned his skills in bespoke Oak-framed carpentry and went on to establish a sawmill and oak framing business in Scotland sourcing timber from the local estates.

In 2005 Ben moved to Cornwall to study and train in boatbuilding.  He has been building boats and sailing ever since.”

A Greek Christmas Tradition

While people across the world are decorating their Christmas trees, many Greeks opt for the Greek tradition of decorating a small boat. Greece was always a maritime country and, in the past, the majority of men worked as fishermen or sea men. For many centuries, Greeks have been decorating small wooden boats in order to express their gratitude for the safe return of their loved ones who were travelling at sea for the rest of the year.
