Boat Building Classes

Join us for building class with a difference, a one on one session rather than a group setting. Allowing you much more flexibility, the boat that will be constructed and the date on which the course takes place are set by you, no waiting for a class offering the boat that interests you which may take place at a time that does not suit your schedule. 

You will need to purchase some basic personal protective equipment for use during the course and for finishing the boat when you take it home.

To discuss setting up a class time and which boat you would like to construct send us an e-mail at

For those in the US who may be interested in taking a course with us we are located just 15 minutes from the Port Huron/Sarnia border crossing.

Please note: Tuition costs are in Canadian dollars   Ontario taxes are applicable to all classes.

Class timing is on a first come first served basis.

There are two pricing options the first is a true one on one course the second is for the primary builder and a helper.
