Peter has been around boats since his school days. This led to a career in Naval Architecture, training and working in England, working in Sydney (10 years) and Perth (40 years). Much of this Perth time has been as a self-employed consultant, with extensive experience in GRP design and construction. Innovation has loomed large.
A few years ago Peter became interested in industrial hemp, setting up Hemp Building Services WA as a design consultancy. This led to the current interest and the creation of Hemp Fibre Boats (HFB). The first HFB design release will be on the coming March conference.
This website supports the concept of Design Projects. These are design entities that exist at the level of generating some documentation, but are not at the stage of imminent release for production. Their major role is to guide potential clients into bringing forward their needs and wishes, and how these could be addressed by Hemp Fibre Boats.
Operating as a single person design consultancy over a range of markets and disciplines for around 40 years, mainly in small commercial vessels. This work has provided a lot of the knowledge base available to Peter Edmonds in support of Hemp Fibre Boats and its concepts.
This is to bring together various aspects of the provision of engineering, professional and materiel services for the hemp building industry in Western Australia. Hemp Fibre Boats has grown from this environment.

We welcome all enquiries, whether it is about a concept design, current design, implementation of an idea, or have a view of a concept design to bring to production!
