Nigel Morris

From Pushing Paper to Planing Planks



For 30 years Nigel Morris was a project manager working on high profile and intense projects around the world; then on 20 August 2018 he jumped ship and decided to become a boat builder.  He describes how his life long passion for boats and wood working got the better of him and he spent 40 exciting and challenging weeks at the Boat Building Academy in Lyme Regis, learning woodwork and eventually building his own 21 foot boat in the final 16 weeks of the course.  He’s now practising his newly acquired skills on renovating a Dunkirk Little Ship.
