Willie Austin – Boatbuilder Of Avon


Abstract:
Austin has been building boats since he was a young man. He has his own methods for building boats; he has never used any special plans, and he follows his own instinct when building. He uses three tools when building boats in his shop: a dewalt, joiner, and a planer. Austin can build two fourteen-footers a week.
