Boat building

If you have the inclination, contact Woodenboat School in Brooklin, Maine, and find out what their boatbuilding instruction schedules are. For the cost of the tuition and (reasonable) cost of materials, they''ll house you, feed you, instruct you and provide you with all the funky tools necessary to build any of a wide variety of watercraft (your selection). In some cases, they raffle off the vessel built in a group class. In others, you keep the vessel yourself. All this in an idyllic setting overlooking Eggemoggin Reach with sailing dinghys to use, etc. Pretty cool stuff. KW
