Introduction to Boat Building

Introduction to Boat Building

Ever wondered what thwarts or cold moulding are?  This ‘boat beginners’ two day course looks at how different boats are shaped and why, terminology, construction methods, materials, propulsion, sails and rigs and rigging. Unusually for the Academy Introduction to Boat Building is a classroom based course but workshop walkabouts and short strolls to the harbour and Cornish Pilot Gig shed to look at boats mean legs will be stretched regularly.
