Description

Tinderbox is an 18 foot, modified Swamscott dory, built from a design by Will Chamberlain for hunting on the Great Lakes. She was very strongly built by Ian Johnston from plywood with sealed buoyancy compartments including a double floor. She is among the most sea worth open boats around, and has ventured to Port Davey and all over the East Coast of Tasmania. She has served as Marshaling Vessel for every Wooden Boat Festival since its inauguration in 1994.
