LEARN TO FIBERGLASS

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 23 2022

Have you ever wondered how fiberglass works,

when to use it,
and how to apply it?

 

Join us as Julius Spradley of Denver Custom Boatworks answers these questions and shows how to fiberglass the hull of the 13’ skiff he’s building. We will cover how fiberglass works, its best uses, what materials and techniques are required, and how to apply it over wood.
The workshop will be at

2019 CLASSES

BUILD A SABOTINA SAILING PRAM

July 29 - August 9 2019

The Sabotina satisfies the triumvirate of a good sailing pram: it rows well, tows well, and sails well. And this pram is relatively easy to build, appropriate for beginner boat builders! Join us for an intensive 12-day course where you will build the Sabotina, Glen-L's version of the Sabot and El-Toro design with the masterful assistance of Instructor Greg.

The Sabotina is 7'-10" long with a 3'-11" beam, so you can literally take it home on top of a car! This is the perfect pram for all of your boating adventures, and the perfect boat to teach all the kids in your life to sail with. This boat is standard construction, not stitch-and-glue, so you will learn more advanced hull-building techniques during this course.

Build Your Own

Boat $1750

Take The

Course $500

In this one-week class, you will build either a 12-1/2-foot or 14-foot Kaholo paddleboard.  The Kaholo 14 is better for larger paddlers, 190lbs or more (or those who might carry along dogs or small kids). The 12-6 is more compact, best for smaller-statured paddlers, and it fits in several increasingly popular racing classes. There are no other SUP boards in the world that are easier for a first-time boatbuilder.

Prices are $1525 for the Kaholo 12'6" and $1560 for the Kaholo 14' board.  These prices include shipping and the materials for building the board.  It does not include varnish or any desired painting or customizing supplies or materials.
