Cleveland Amateur Boatbuilding workshop
February 9, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm$195
Want to learn to build a boat? Learn hands-on as you use simple hand tools to build a a lightweight, 15-foot boat paddled like a kayak, called a “six-hour canoe.”
Cleveland Amateur Boatbuilders will host its second annual Boatbuilding Basics workshop, starting Saturday, Feb. 9. It runs 9 a.m.-3 p.m. for five consecutive Saturdays in the Phastar Building.
Participants will work in teams of four. When it’s completed, each boat will be raffled off among the four who built it.
Novices are welcome. You must be 14 to participate.
Participants will learn to read boat plans, fit plywood panels, cut compound angles, plane bevels, use epoxy glue and fiberglass tape, sand, and paint. The skills learned can be applied to a more complex boat, a kit boat or even furniture-making and home repair.
Registration closes January 30, 2019.
