"Boatbuilding has been a tradition in the Chambers family for over 120 years. From the early day shipyards in Scotland to the local boat yards of the 1950's, ships have been a major part of our lives."

"The plans that I have accumulated are all that remain of many of these vessels. I hope that this form of art may help preserve this nation's rich maritime heritage."
