Organisation Profile: About Us – “New Lives from Old Boats” Wooden Canal Boat Society. – “New Lives from Old Boats” The Wooden Canal Boat Society has the second largest collection of former working wooden canal boats in UK. Rather than simply restore and preserve them, The WCBS is finding new uses for these wonderful old boats, putting them to work on behalf of the local community and at the same time providing opportunities for people to learn new skills, meet people, make friends, do something useful and rewarding………………. Working with wooden boats can change peoples lives. We restore historic wooden boats and put them back into use for the community, offering fully crewed cruises for people suffering from poor mental health and other difficulties.
