Weʼve raised £11,684 to replace the often specialised hand and power tools of the boat builder craftsmen at the fire gutted Underfall Yard in Bristol
- Funded on Tuesday, 5th September 2023
Don't have time to donate right now?
Fire has destroyed several boatbuilding sheds at the historic Underfall Yard in Bristol, where 8 boatbuilders work on building and restoring wooden boats. These craftsmen often use specialised tools like caulking irons and mallets, specially shaped planes, etc. Often acquired over a lifetime and jealously protected. But also all the common hand and power tools for woodwork, that are their private tools. The company's insurance wont cover these. The usefulness of the tools in the shed that received partial fire damage, but plenty of water damage, is doubtful.
To ensure that these skilled and committed craftsmen can continue to serve the often historic wooden boats that rely on them, and for them to keep earning a living by maintaining and bringing beautiful things into the world, we urgently need funds NOW.

Well, that was an extraordinary generous crowd! We are so thankful for all your donations, from the smallest to the unexpected biggest amounts, THANK YOU! And not only that, people have come forward to donate tools as well, so we are a very lucky bunch. We have been able to reimburse the guys for all the more easily replaceable tools, and to contribute to fellow boat builderJohn Raymond Barker's loss of his boat and all his tools. And that leaves some money when we return to Underfall when more expenses will follow. We'll see you there!
