I'm tentatively scheduled to attend a week long class in Annapolis
to build/assemble a stitch and glue row boat
The class is from the 23rd to the 28th of March.
Generally the participants purchase
the kit (but not always), pay a tuition and at the end of the week take home their boat
I want to build my own design in Leb and so I have no need for the boat.
They do allow "helpers" and have a reduced tuition and of course don't need to buy the kit.
Participants in this class all build one design 18ft...but there is a tandem version of this design 19ft 10in that can be built during this class...and is strongly recommended to be done with a helper.
I'm wondering if any of our members have been considering building one of these.
I offer myself as that helper...I will of course pay my own tuition.
They have no problem allowing me to attend without a specific boat or partner.
