Kingston, N.Y. - The Wooden Boat School at the Hudson River Maritime Museum, is excited to offer a robust list of courses perfect for every boat enthusiast. Starting Friday March 17th, Captain Ken Roberts will host a Six Pack through 100 Ton Master Captain’s License course. This class takes place over 11 days and will provide the training and testing requirements to apply for a US Coast Guard License.
What better way to spend the summer with a week-long course building your very own canoe! From June 10-15, Instructor Rich Cerruto will lead students in building skin-on-frame double paddle canoes. This lightweight canoe only weighs 30 lbs and will be constructed with a wooden frame and stretched with a nylon "skin". Each student will leave with a completed canoe ready for the water. Easily car-topped, they are perfect for casual paddlers and beginning boatbuilders alike.
If you are looking for the most unique way to bond with your loved ones, why not build a boat together? Families and friends are encouraged to join us for a weekend of private group instruction where teams of 2-5 people will build a complete row boat that is ready for paint. This private group course is offered June 23 & 24, and there is possibility to arrange alternative dates upon request. The boat is yours to take home at the end of the class.
