Fuselage frame boat building is probably the easiest method of construction for the home builder. Using our kit and instruction manual, anyone can build a kayak. Building a boat is a big commitment in both time and money. If you're a little hesitant about starting down this path and would like some guidance in your journey to become a boat builder you might be interested in one of our hosted classes.
The classes are held in our workshop in mid-coast Maine. We provide all the instruction, equipment and materials so that at the end of the week you'll leave with your very own skin-on-frame kayak.
The week usually starts off with an introduction reception on Sunday evening; something to break the ice and help to start the week off on the right note. The class runs from Monday to Friday and finishes off with a traditional Maine lobster bake on Friday evening. The days are long, but we usually find some time to sneak away and get out on the water.
Class cost is $1,650.00 per person. This includes all material needed to build a single boat. Lunches and snacks are included along with the introduction reception and the graduation lobster boil.
Accommodations are not included in the price. There are a number of inns, B&Bs, hotels and campgrounds in the area. Give us a call and we can help you find the perfect place to stay.
Let us help you build your boat in a week. Classes run through the summer and fall. Check out our calendar of available dates.
