More information:
Piners’ Punts were used as part of Tasmania’s commercial timber industry in its rivers and tributaries since the 1850s. Little known outside of the Huon and West Coast Rivers systems until the late twentieth century, they have since entered folklore as a type of boat unique to Tasmania.
Tasmanian Piners’ Punts is the culmination of more than twenty years of research by members of the Wooden Boat Guild of Tasmania, Inc., assisted by a Maritime Museums of Australia Project Support Scheme (MMAPSS) grant from the Australian National Maritime Museum.
