If you like working with wood and are looking for a fun summer course, check out the new half-model boat building course taught by CFCC’s own master shipwright Mark Bayne.

The course is offered twice this summer through CFCC’s Continuing Education department. There will be two sessions with 12 hours of hands on instruction. The first session is June 10, 12, 17, and 19 from 6-9 p.m. The second session will be July 8, 10, 15 and 17 from 6-9 p.m. Cost will be $92.00 plus a $3 parking fee and materials.

Students will learn how to read a basic set of boat plans, the history of half models and their use in traditional boatbuilding. Upon completion attendees will have constructed their own half model of the Official North Carolina State Boat “NC Shad Boat” Circa 1890.
