Renowned boatwright, Reuben Smith, will lead a dynamic 10-week course building an elegant plywood sailing Shellback Dinghy at the Windmill Point Boathouse. The class will meet Mondays and Wednesdays, 7:00 - 9:30 pm, June 21 though August 26. This project is well suited for amateurs and backyard tinkerers, as well as skilled boatbuilders. Building the shellback includes many of the processes boatbuilders use to construct much bigger and more elaborate boats, such as lofting, spiling, scarphing, and building spars, but in a small and do-able way. We’ll start from scratch and by the end, be sailing a handsome, well-crafted boat. The completed Shellback Dinghy will be raffled throughout the year to support the museum - with the winning name pulled at the 2005 Snow Row. Only 250 tickets will be sold at $50 each, hard odds to beat! To enroll, or for more information, please contact Corinne Leung at the museum, 781-925-5433 or Reuben Smith at 617-462-7215.
