This was an amazing job to be involved with, and the clients vision to place a wooden yacht in the middle of the Restaurant added to this great build. The boat was built in Albany in the 1960s, by retired farmer Jim Thompson. He wanted to build a racing boat and it took him seven years and by the time he completed it and finally raced it, technology had advanced so much that he ended up coming last. He never raced it again. The boat eventually made its way to Perth and was found in an old boat yard in Maylands. Keith Leech, a local boat builder and carpenter spent six months restoring the boat under a tarp in a light industrial yard in Augusta. The renovated boat has now found its new home at Colour Patch Restaurant.
We measured the boat up in the shipyard a few months before templating on site once it was in its final position. The finished product is fantastic and we recommend if you are ever in Augusta, you must check it out, not only is the location and venue fantastic, we recommend the food too!
