The Boat Project
As part of the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad and the Artists Taking the Lead project, a remarkable boat is being built.
People from the South East UK were asked to bring in wood - "pencil or piano - exotic as Zebrawood or as familiar as pine" with a story to tell. 1,200 people responded and each donation is being used to construct a 30 ft daysailer.
The photo above is from the topsides. The launch is set for 7 May in Emsworth on Chichester Harbor and her maiden voyage will be a sail throughout the South East of England during the summer.
