Help MIT Museum celebrate our 5th "Nautical Skills" IAP course andbeautify the Charles River. The class will build an 11-foot lapstrake-plywood Shellback rowing/sailing dinghy from the designer's plans. This popular boat was designed by Joel White (Course XIII '54). These boats are a dream to row, easy to rig and great fun to sail. You can enjoy the fruit of your labor in the spring since the boat will join the MIT Nautical Association's fleet. The instructor is a highly experienced boat builder and well versed in "boat philosophy". You will appreciate the precision of fine hand tools and learn cool woodworking techniques. After completing the class you will have gained the skill and confidence to build this boat on your own. Co-sponsored by the Department of Architecture.
