This is a five-day class ending Friday.

Have you ever wondered why it’s called Cold-Molded? Do you want to know when it’s ok to use a little fiberglass or carbon fiber on your wooden boat? Curious about how to vacuum bag? Do you know what G10 is?

All these questions and more will be answered with hands-on demonstrations and real-life examples in this new course, taught by professional boat builder and longtime WoodenBoat School instructor Mike Moros, as he guides you through a comprehensive overview of wood composite techniques.

This course will include a variety of projects that might include:  vacuum-bagging a transom, fiberglassing part of a wooden hull, laying veneers on a jig, working with G10, finishing and painting over fiberglass, working with carbon fiber, and many other aspects of Composite construction.  It will also include shop talks and product demostrations, as well as a few tours of local boat yards that use composite construction in their new build and repair projects.
