Maritime Trail 2021

Cody Horgan Traditional Shipwright

Presenter: Cody Horgan

A Shipwright's perspective on Maintaining the ANMM's Heritage Fleet. Over the last 22 years Cody has been working on the best and the worst boats Sydney has had to offer. Starting his training in 1999 at the Franklin Wooden Boat School, Cody made his way through the Paramatta River, up to the Hawkesbury River and back to Sydney Harbour, working on a range of vessels including classic Halvorsens at Bobbin Head and a range of classic timber yachts. In 2010 Cody changed tack, challenging himself on a tall ship, becoming the "Chippy" on board the James Craig until he jumped ship to become the Senior Shipwright on the Bark Endeavour for the Australian National Maritime Museum. Over an eight year period Cody gathered remarkable experience on a range of Australia's most iconic vessels including the Krait, Kathleen Gillett and the Couta Boat, Thistle. More recently, Cody came full circle with a new berth at The Wooden Boat Centre in Franklin where he works amongst a team of trainers developing the skills of the next generation of shipwrights.
