Traditional Wooden Boats
Displayed outside ono 30th will be a number of full size original clinker built rowing boats from the wooden boat era on Lough Erne. Included with them will be one of two recently built clinker boats. On these you will see the craftsmanship and detail that went into making one of these boats which were an essential part of life on and around the lough. The two types of cart displayed are two of the three traditional wooden boats of lough Erne. The third and earliest boat in Ireland is the Log boat or dugout canoe. Information will be displayed with the boats and some of the owners will be on hand who may be able to describe the use the boat had. With the clinker boats will be one of the new lough Erne Cots recently build to re-introduce the ancient sport of Cot Racing. Two of the craft will be completed by August when practice will begin for those people who wish to take part in this sport a team of three is required to race a cot.
