Class/Workshop, Education
12-Week Intensive Boat Building Program
Gig Harbor BoatShop is offering a unique boatbuilding experience over the course of 12 weeks. More than a weekend workshop and less than a full-year boat school program, this three-day per week opportunity will sharpen your wood working skills and immerse you in the boatbuilding traditions of Gig Harbor’s historic Eddon Boatyard. Taught by master boatbuilding instructor Patrick Mahon, the Monday through Wednesday, 12-week class might best be characterized as a ‘mini boat school.’ The hands-on traditional boatbuilding experience begins with lofting, then boat construction - including mold-making, planking, engine placement, finish work and all steps in between. Upon completion of the program, students will have the skillset to build their own traditional wooden boat. If you live locally the three-day per week class will provide time for other commitments. If you are from out of the area you'll have time to explore the great Pacific Northwest.
