Introduction to Wooden Boat Building

February 25 - February 26

$162.00 – $180.00

Explore the art of boat building from start to finish during a two-day, hands-on course at the North Carolina Maritime Museum’s Harvey W. Smith Watercraft Center. The course begins with the design and lofting of boats and moves on to the setup, steam bending and different methods of creating the backbone of small boats. Additional topics include how to make planking systems, both carvel and lap strake, and all the appropriate fastening systems. By the end of the course, students will have the knowledge and skill to choose a design and style of boat to build on their own and the confidence to take on the job. Class runs from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. each day. Course size is limited, and advance registration is required. The minimum age is 16 years old; under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
