Shipbuilding & Small Boats In-house shipbuilding apprenticeship headed by trained shipwright Paul DeNoble. We are considering partnering with accredited shipbuilding schools from Canada, the Netherlands, England or the US. If we do partner with a school, we would offer our own, less formal training alongside their structured curriculum. To be determined.

SAILMAKING We have yet to find our Sailmaker. As this important task will not begin for some time, we are not focusing on the production of sails just yet.  However, please contact us today if you are interested in being this person - there's nothing like planning ahead! We are also hoping to partner with a sailmaker who is open to using experimental material - such as sail-covers of solar panels.
