Testimonials


“The Wooden Boatshop have been undertaking the slipping and maintenance of T’Ellen, our Beneteau Oceanis 34, for the last two years. This has involved more than just antifouling, polishing and engine service as we requested several technical upgrades to our boat during that time. The Wooden Boatshop have made recommendations that have improved our enjoyment of sailing.

Tim Phillips and The Wooden Boatshop’s exceptional boating knowledge instils confidence in the maintenance performed, and the boat has been very reliable while under their care. Their service runs to taking our boat from its berth at Blairgowrie Marina to Queenscliff to be slipped and then returning to our berth on completion. Nothing is too much trouble and their advice is excellent.

I am happy to highly recommend the team at The Wooden Boat Shop for those boat owners that want high quality service.”

Standard Flagpoles




Specifications


The staff is made from laminated structural grade timbers. The tabernacle is made from galvanised steel, bolted together with galvanised bolts. The tabernacle goes beneath the ground level by approximately 26" to 32" and is concreted in place.

Treated with penetrating epoxy wood preserver and finished white with two coats of marine quality two pack paint system applied to manufacturers specifications.

The turned wooden truck houses the bronze halliard sheave. The halliard is ¼" yacht braid fitted with flag clips. A traditional cleat is fitted for making it fast.

Please Note
Ingress of freshwater into the wood and/or end grain of the flagpole will cause rot, an intact paint film will protect the flagpole from water ingress. We advise that a new flagpole should be initially painted at three years from new & thereafter, annually visibly inspected and as a rough rule of thumb painted every five years. The thru bolts require sealing to eliminate any water ingress.

Water sprinkling systems are not recommended in the vicinity of a flagpole. It is recommended that the halliards be endless, with adjustable plastic Ronstan PNP 16 sister clips.

Marine Trimming, Sails & Boat Covers





Since we incorporated a marine trimming and sail repair loft we’ve been able to raise the bar and develop high standards of marine upholstery and finishes. Our 42 square metre loft is equipped for the manufacture and repair of covers, sail repairs and alterations.

We use a walking foot straight stich machine, and a long arm zig zag machine. We keep stock of generic hardware materials, so we’re able to work quickly and directly with clients.





Works that have been undertaken include stack pack and lazy jack systems, U.V cover replacements on furling headsails, customised sheet bags and lee cloths, clear covers and upholstery on cruisers, domestic shade sails and furniture covers.
All covers and upholstery on our range of boats are manufactured in our loft.
