STRAWBERY BANKE MUSEUM

HANDS ON BOATS Planking HALF DAY

Event Dates: 9/11/2017 - 9/19/2017

Location: Boatshop at Strawbery Banke


HANDS ON BOATS, the Boatshop’s new signature program, is designed for adults who are interested in wooden boats and who want to be part of constructing a new boat while learning-by-doing alongside a master boat builder. The 2017 HANDS ON BOATS participants will build a new Piscataqua River Wherry based on the lines off of an historic Piscataqua River Wherry, which is part of the Strawbery Banke Museum collection.

“Planking for a NEW Piscataqua River Wherry," September 6-10, 9 am to noon (half day).

Planking is the watertight skin of a boat. Building off the work completed in the molds, patterns and frames sessions, participants will work alongside Nate Piper, master boat builder to learn how to line off, spile, cut out, bevel and hang lapstrake planking on the new Piscataqua River Wherry.
 
As part of the planking process, participants will also have the opportunity to learn to use copper clench nails, traditional fasteners produced onsite at The Boatshop on the last remaining nail machine in the United States.

Full Day: 9am-4pm, includes lunch, $130 museum members; $145 non-members*
Half Day: 9am-noon, $79.20 museum members; $88 non-members*

*Prices are per day. Discounts available when you sign up for multiple days in advance. Please contact us for discount codes prior to signing up.
 
The remainder of the 2017 HANDS ON BOATS sessions will focus on the sequential phases of the new boat’s construction. Join us for on these additional sessions:

“Trim, rails and finish work for a NEW Piscataqua River Wherry,” October 11-14
“Hardware for a NEW Piscataqua River Wherry,” October 28-29

The new boat will be raffled off upon completion.
