Boat Making Apprentice program

On April 10, 2009 my son David and I went to the St Michaels Maritime Museum which is on the Chesapeake Bay. In their Boat shop they have an apprentice program where you build a boat on Sat and Sundays. As many people that show up work on the boat. It may take a period of months to finish the boat. You don't have to go every day in the weekend or every week.

The Museum web site.

The Apprentice program.



Notice the price on the completed boats.

The current boat under construction.




It is modeled after this boat.



This is another boat that is completed.



The row boat that was used in the movie "Failure to Launch" with Matthew McConaughey and Sarah Jessica Parker, where they were in a row boat on a small lake was made in the apprentice program at the museum and was sold to a buyer in California. It hung off the roof of the boat house for a couple of years before the buyer picked it up.
nice post. i bet you and David had a good time out there:)

There used to be and may still be a big wooden boat show in Seattle in late Aug or early Sept. I remember the dates because one of the wife's cousins brought his boat to a family reunion on the way home one year.

I just remembered a friend who was building a 20 some foot sail boat who had me haul the keel form him was getting a divorce. His ex decided to take a chain saw to the project one day in a fit of rage!! He had teh ribs pretty well done the last time I saw it. That was pretty much the end of that boat :-(( I don't know if he was able to slavage anything, but he heated with wood and was very short on $$, so I suppose it went in the stove.
