Geoff Kerr builds Annapolis Wherries at the WoodenBoat SchoolSince 1994, CLC boatbuilding classes have launched more than a thousand boats and introduced countless men, women, and children to the joys of boatbuilding. Our talented professional instructors will help you assemble your own boat from start to finish.  Most classes are 5-1/2 days---a perfect one-week vacation, with your own boat to take home, ready for finish work.

Demand has grown every year as the word spreads.  In 2014 we ran more than 30 classes at sites in Maine, Connecticut, Maryland, Michigan, California and Washington State.  Our boatbuilding school partners include the famous WoodenBoat School in Brooklin, Maine, the Wooden Boat Foundation in Port Townsend, Washington, and the Great Lakes Boatbuilding School in Cedarville, Michigan.
