The AMATEUR BOAT BUILDERS’ ASSOCIATION of WESTERN AUSTRALIA (ABBA) is a group of home boat builders building in timber, aluminium, fibreglass and other materials. About half the members currently have projects under way, ranging from dinghys to ocean going yachts and historic rebuilds. Others have either completed boats, are restoring classics or just have an interest in things nautical.

Meetings  We meet on the FIRST WEDNESDAY of every EVEN month (Feb, Apr, Jun, Aug, Oct & Dec) at the South of Perth Yacht Club, 7.30 pm for an 8.00 pm start. These meeting usually involve a guest speaker on a relevant topic with time to socialise and network with others.

Toolbox Visits  Visits to members’ projects, practical demonstrations at commercial premises or other events of interest take place at the beginning of every ODD month, usually on a Saturday afternoon.

 Web Site This website is continually updated with details of upcoming events and other information. Have a look at the “LIBRARY” section to see the wide range of informative topics that have been covered, the varied and interesting places we have visited and the diverse range of projects undertaken by our members.

Interested? ABBA welcomes new members – hopefully we can all share advice, techniques, experiences and other information. To join us, just come along to a meeting or contact 0419 508 785 or cadeefamily@bigpond.com  for more details.
