George Krewson is a rocket scientist based in Cocoa, Florida, where he has spent almost four decades working on America’s space program. George grew up sailing and surfing and began building boats after visiting WoodenBoat School during a Maine vacation. After building a few kayaks on his own, he became a “beta” builder for Chesapeake Light Craft and has assembled several prototypes over the years. As an instructor, he particularly enjoys sharing the sense of amazement he felt with his own first build when flat pieces of plywood came together into a beautifully curved hull. George began experimenting with exotic wood veneers with his second boat, and has become a “go-to” guy in classes and on the CLC forum for technical tips on the subject. He guarantees every boat built in one of his classes will float.
