It all starts with a model...

Build your own quarter-scale boat model of the classic, beautiful Echo Bay Dory Skiff. The model is 35" long and designed to be built just like the real boat. This class is a great introduction to full scale boatbuilding. The scale is smaller, but the steps are very similar. We will prepare parts with some cutting and drilling, assemble the hull with wires, and glue the hull together. On the last day we'll apply decorative trim, make a sail out of mylar, and if time allows, we will varnish or paint your model.  At home you can proudly display on your mantel or float it in a nearby pond!
