Have you always wanted to build a boat but never been quite confident enough to give it a go? We will show you how: Whether a small canoe or a large yacht, woodstrip construction makes it easy to build even complex boat shapes.
The theoretical part of the course covers the following subjects:
  • Choosing the correct shape
  • Reading and drawing a plan
  • Extruding the lines required for the construction (frame ribs minus shell, inner stem)
  • Choosing and finding the right materials (wood, glues, coating materials)
  • Making the wood strips (concave/convex)
  • Mould-making for laminating
  • Coating the hull with a layer of fibre glass fabric and epoxy resin
In the practical part of the course you will learn the following:
  • Setting up a slip
  • Transferring a frame to a particle board
  • Planing the sliding bevel
  • Setting up and aligning the frame
  • Laminating an inner stem
  • Covering a small part of the boat’s hull with wooden planks
