Paul's love of boats started at an early age and he later spent weekends volunteering at the Liverpool Maritime Museum, where he helped restore the 3-masted schooner 'De Wadden' and the pilot boat 'Edmund Gardner'. Bath Tap Boats
arose from Paul's enjoyment of salvaging wood and other reclaimed materials and from combing shorelines for items of interest and potential. His magpie eye has led to a varied collection of items, from copper pipes and old brass hinges to Victorian taps, which he now gives a new lease of life incorporating them into his handcrafted boats. Bath Tap Boats are not mass-produced, by their very nature each boat is completely individual.
