There is not currently a Wooden Boat Association in Western Australia. There are, however, other organisations that overlap the aims of the Wooden Boat Associations. They are the

Classic Yacht Association, which also has branches in other states and

Amateur Boat Builders Association (ABBA)

The AMATEUR BOAT BUILDING ASSOCIATION (ABBA) of WA is a group of home boat builders based in WA, building chiefly in timber but also in other materials. About half the members currently have projects under way, ranging from a 2.4 m dinghy to 11 m ocean racers and including historic rebuilds. Others have either completed boats or are contemplating starting.

Evening meetings always involve a guest speaker on a relevant topic. They are held on the last Wednesday of every second month from July (Sept, Nov, etc) at South of Perth Yacht Club. Members are asked to arrive from 7.30 for a 8.00 start. Visits to members' projects also take place bi-monthly, on the second Saturday afternoon of every other month. A bi-monthly newsletter is mailed or emailed to all members. It chiefly reports on the previous two months' activities and advertises future events. It is timed to arrive just before each evening meeting.

ABBA welcomes all new and prospective members - hopefully we can all share advice, techniques and other information.
