Other Considerations:


Learn the techniques of stitch and glue boatbuilding before you build your own boat! In this class you will be guided by CWB’s instructors as we work together to build a couple of CLC’s boat kits. You’ll practice the same methods of boat construction as our other CLC classes including: how to read the plans, proper use of epoxy, stitching the kit together, sanding and filleting, laying fiberglass, and more! This is a great way to study the fundamentals of plywood kit boatbuilding before you embark on your own project!

*We are tentatively planning on building CLC’s Jimmy Skiff II and a Lake Union Swift, although the exact models are subject to change due to demand and other factors.
