Students worked with Wind & Oar Boat School to build a Phoenix III sailboat for a client. Alongside master boat builders, students learned the math and problem-solving skills to build a classic wooden boat. Students learned the forestry needed to understand the natural resources required to create products such as sailboats.
A Sea Worthy Boat
This project was paused during the pandemic. Students resumed work in December of 2020 and hope to complete a seaworthy boat by the end of the 2021-22 school year.
