Cedar-Strip Boat Construction: Techniques & Fundamentals   

With more than just aesthetic appeal, cedar-strip boats are known for being lightweight, strong, and quick to build. Gain the know-how and confidence to complete a boat project in your own backyard through seven days of hands-on instruction building a tandem canoe with other students. Techniques involve setting up the strongback and templates, planking, fiberglassing, and fitting out the canoe, and other boatbuilding skills. Just like the title says, a solid foundation of the “techniques and fundamentals” provides the skills to navigate a cedar-strip boat building project at home. Separate tuition payment and cancellation policies apply to this course. At the close of the course, the student-built canoe will be for sale at a defined price to an interested student for the cost of materials. If multiple students are interested, a drawing will decide who will go home with the tandem canoe. An easy project to cartop back to your waterway to start your paddling adventure!
