Our Promise To Our Friends, our Customers.

Here at Boatcraft, we keep a roof over our heads and something to eat on the table by selling stuff for wooden boats, (and often for other things as well) but really, we have a sneaking suspicion that it is actually more about being able to think about and be involved in wooden boats when less fortunate souls have to think about work they don’t really care that much about.
Our promise to you is that we will try to share our passion for wooden boats with you.  We will do every reasonable thing in our power to help you on your journey into the world of wooden boats.

Ian has had more than 50 years of wooden boat experience, including building little ones and not so little ones, sailing a 26ft wooden boat without an engine from Melbourne to Sydney, a 23ft plywood boat from Victoria to Hobart and return and is currently the skipper of a 70 foot luxury wooden yawl which was once the Royal Yacht of Algeria.  He is a member of the WBAQ and the Classic Yacht Association.
Scott has built a kayak, and been involved in the building of a larger yacht.
  He is also a registered researcher associate in the shark conservation program.
Geof has built no less than 4 wooden boats and restored some others in the last 10 years. His restoration of an historic sailing yacht is on display in the
Queensland Maritime Museum.
Bruce has built several interesting wooden boats and has restored a number of classic wooden boats such as a classic Noose River Hire Boat.
  In addition he is heavily involved with both the Wooden Boat Association and the Queensland Maritime Museum.

We support the Wooden Boat Association of Queensland and we are members of it. 

Every two years, the Australian Wooden Boat Festival is held in Hobart.  Boatcraft is heavily involved,  in many different ways.  In 2011, Boatcraft sponsored the bringing of Iain Oughtred from Scotland to the festival to meet with and conduct extremely well attended lectures about his designs.

Our wider family, the dedicated souls who carry and sell our products are also passionate.  They include a couple who have sailed around the world in a catamaran that they built themselves, another couple who did the same around Australia, the founder of the iconic Duck Flat Wooden Boats, a sail makers who passes his spare time… well sailing, and a former naval engineering officer who just couldn’t give up the sea.  Our wider family are active members of the WBANQ, WBANSW, WBAVic, WBGTas, and WBASA.

 

Some fine print.
We are not experts in the design, construction or repair of boats (or other objects). We do not hold any professional, technical or trade qualifications in the design, construction or repair of boats (or other objects).  This paragraph is to give notice that we consider that under the Australian Consumer Law Schedule 2, section 55 (3) that it would be unreasonable for you to rely on our skill or judgment. We can only give general advice from our experience regarding design, construction or repair.  We suggest that if you have concerns you should, or if the failure of the item in question could have serious consequences then we believe that you must, consult a naval architect, engineer or other suitably qualified person.
As we have no control of what you do with the goods that we supply or how you make use of these goods and as the goods that we supply are not goods of a kind ordinarily acquired for personal, domestic or household use, we believe that under section 64A(1) of the Australian Consumer Law Schedule 2, (with the exception of matters arising under section 51, 52 or 53) our liability is limited to one or more of the following:

(a)    
the replacement of the goods or the supply of equivalent goods;
(b)    
the repair of the goods;
(c)     
the payment of the cost of replacing the goods or of acquiring equivalent goods;
(d)    
the payment of the cost of having the goods repaired.
It is important to note that as a result our liability does not extend to consequential damages.

 The law requires that we include this statement:
"Our goods come with guarantees that cannot be excluded under the Australian Consumer Law. You are entitled to a replacement or refund for a major failure and for compensation for any other reasonably foreseeable loss or damage. You are also entitled to have the goods repaired or replaced if the goods fail to be of acceptable quality and the failure does not amount to a major failure."

How-ever we understand that sections 55(3) and 64A(1) of the Australian Consumer Law alter your right to compensation.
