Seminar on boat building set
MARQUETTE — Retired art teacher Bill Lawrence will present at 7 p.m. Wednesday at the Marquette Maritime Museum on how to build the 10 1/2 foot Pointy Skiff, a design by Naval Architect Phil Bolger.
The slide presentation will cover boat building techniques from selecting construction materials to epoxy fiberglass taping and finishing your wooden boat. Blueprints for building two wood boats will be on display with glues, adhesives, bronze boat nails and information handouts.
A lumberyard 12-foot row boat will be on display and the card board scale model it was built from — the audience will see how easy it can be done.
Anyone interested in building a wooden boat should attend this presentation. $5 suggested donation. Call 906-226-2006 for more information.
