Building boats in Alice Springs? Geddaway!

For St Philip's College students the idea isn't all that far-fetched: "We're equal distance to any coast in Australia," they say.
In fact their school is the only one in Australia to offer a Year 12 boat building course.

One boat they built this year is a 5.5m John Dory and the other one a Gaot Island Skiff, seen being launched in the Glen Helen Gorge by students Joshua Blain and Paul Berriman, and Geoff Leedham, Head of Applied Technology.
All techniques of modern timber boat building were applied, using Australian made marine grade Hoop Pine and other associated timbers, including Fiji Mahogany and Huon Pine. With modern epoxy adhesives one boat used only six screws in its construction, while the other had none.
