About the Author
Last year my wife and I moved from Virginia
to Washington so that I could attend the School,
where I am now in my second quarter.
This quarter, I'm in the contemporary wooden
boatbuilding class (we're in our second week),
and am one of five students building a Caledonia
Yawl. I've been taking 25-30 pictures a day
of the building process, and figured Duckworks
would be interested in an occasional article
on the school, what my class is doing, and
what the other two classes (Traditional Large
and Traditional Small boat Building) are doing.
We have eight boats in progress on campus
at the moment; all of them as different as
night and day (a Pete Culler sampan, the Oughtred-designed
Caledonia Yawl, a Wilborn dory, a Monk-designed
fishing skiff, a Swedish kostaboat or kog,
and a couple more).
