Here are a few photos from this summer’s classes at Great Lakes Boat Building School. I taught a series of classes that included one day seminars, one week team building classes and build your own boat classes. It was a great time, the students were enthusiastic as well as talented and the Michigan’s Upper Penninsla is beautiful. I was very pleased to be teaching there again next summer. I’ll post the schedule for next year very soon.
