This annual gathering of kayak builders and people interested in home-built kayaks has been going for over 10 years. People drive from all around the North East to see what people have made over the winter. This is a good chance to see finished boats in person.
If you have a wooden kayak, you really need a wooden paddle. In this 5 evening class students will build their own laminated wood kayak paddle. The paddle can be feathered or unfeathered.
This one day workshop at the Connecticut Valley School of Woodworking in Manchester CT will provide interested boatbuilders a solid overview of the strip-planked method of building small boats.
I am privileged to take over the reins for this class from Ted Moores who had taught at the WoodenBoat School for 17 years. Ted is a godfather to all those who now build small boats using the strip-planked, fiberglass and epoxy method.
