Wooden Dream Boat in Weymouth


(Updated 10:58am 6th August 2012)

10:08am 6th August 2012

Over twelve hundred memories, hopes and dreams are the building blocks of a remarkable boat which has come to Weymouth.

The 30ft vessel 'Collective Spirit' has been made by creators Lone Twin out of sentimental pieces of wood donated by local people.

Amongst them are parts from Jimi Hendrix's guitar, bits of old Bank of England boxes and pieces of a memorial tree.

Weymouth is the final stop on its maiden voyage - after that the boat will be available for the public to sail.
