Welcome to the UK Home Built Boat Rally

This site covers 2006 to 2010. From 2010 onwards we moved to a more interactive Forum. Click http://uk-hbbr-forum.61.s1.nabble.com to see it.

Formed in 2006 by Alec Jordan, UK-HBBR is a loose collection of like-minded individuals with a common interest in building boats at home. The aim is to organise several meetings around the country where home boat builders can get together to have a chat, see each others boats, sail in other boats, and talk about the trials, tribulations and rewards of building your own boat.

Details of meetings past and future will be posted on the forum.

Our new Forum has attracted a number of new members many of whom are planning to take part in our rallies, it will be great to meet them.
We often meet informally at the Beale Park Boat Show, which always attracts a  good number of us.

If you’ve built a boat, are planning to, or just want to come along to see what its all about, we’d love to see you.

There is no membership fee, formal organisation, or red tape. If you have read this far consider yourself a member. If you want to keep up with the gossip and chat between meetings, sign up for the forum. You’ll find a link at the top of the page.
