I don’t know how feasible they really are, but they certainly have big ideas.
Those New Zealand folks make some slick looking boats.
Just like the beast they’ve been named after, White Pointer Boats are created to be perfect predators. They combine strength with poise and balance and can switch to pure aggression in an instant.
The brainchild of their owner, Rex Briant, White Pointers are built in Gisborne, New Zealand’s eastern most port. Motor out from here and you feel the elements direct from the South Pole and the southern ocean. So build quality is a key motivator!
The first White Pointer Boat hit the water more than 25 years ago. And every boat since, over 500 in total, has added to the brand’s reputation for producing ruthless fishing machines of supreme craftsmanship and performance.
I haven’t used one, or seen one personally, but an interesting idea that could have some merit.
I wish this guy well… hand building a cedar dugout canoe – and then sailing the English Channel.
The Souquillou Project is not just about the building of a canoe, it’s a project about transforming a tree into a seaworthy vessel and get it about 150 km (about 100 miles) from the inland of North France to the white cliffs of the stormy coast of South England.
