Grand Daughter Wins Raffle

Ruby and her new boat!

Ruby and her new boat!

The annual raffle draw has been won by Ruby Weaver-Burns of Moonah Tasmania. Ruby’s grandmother, Jenny Wilson, purchased a the winning ticket at the Wooden Boat Festival in Hobart.

16 year old Ruby is ecstatic about the win, still deciding if she wants to get the Foster 10 Huon Pine Dinghy in the water or keep it as a sculptural centre piece.

With approx 75 tickets left the Wooden Boat Centre would like to humbly thank all those who purchased a ticket and took part in the raffle. The money raised will be utilised at centre, ensuring the continuation of wooden boat building in our area as well as making sure our beautiful community run centre has its doors open to educate and inspire future boat builders and enthusiasts.
