Karson - Thanks for directing me to this. These are beautiful boats (and pictures). I'll have to find my way there someday. There is an antique boat museum up my way in Clinton, NY that provides some courses, but they're like a full 10 days instead of weekends. The museum is excellent though. Here's the link: www.abm.orgBoat 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.
