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. Once built, the boat will be for sale to interested students at a set price (a drawing will take place on the final day if multiple students are interested). If the boat is unsold after the course, it will be offered for sale via silent auction. Moving the boat is the responsibility of the buyer.
