Student Qualifications

The main requirement for participation in WoodenBoat School courses is the desire to learn. Our students range from novices to seasoned professionals. Our classes are small, and there is a lot of opportunity for one-on-one teaching, so that usually a wide range of students can enjoy and profit from the same class.

However, there are a few courses for which we expect a certain minimum skill level, and that is stated in the individual course descriptions. Also, we encourage students, particularly novices, to do a little prep work for their courses. We will send tool lists and reading lists along with your course confirmation. The more familiar you are with the subject and the tools, and the more questions you have, the more you’ll get out of the course. If you have any questions about the suitability of a course for you, please call Eric Stockinger.


Starting this year, all registration for WoodenBoat School courses will be ONLINE ONLY on this site. This includes your application, course selection, room & board, etc. You will be required to make a deposit online to secure your registration. Once you complete this process, you will receive an email confirmation. If a course is already full, you will have the option to be put on a waiting list and immediately notified when there is an opening.

If you have questions about the registration process, please feel free to call us Monday – Friday, 8:00-4:00 at 207-359-4651; ask for Eric or Kim. For more information, click on the ONLINE ONLY REGESTRATION box on our homepage.
