Boat School graduates work in Port Townsend shipyard

Our Working Graduates
Graduates of the Northwest School of Wooden Boatbuilding work in our nations’ shipyards, boat shops, educational institutions and maritime museums, maintaining the continuity of the art of wooden boat building, repair and restoration.

It seems that with each conversation I have with individual boat school students, new and diverse goals emerge for their careers. Today I spoke with one who is preparing to enter the automotive industry to do design work. Another wants to work in a high quality speed boat company. Other students are interested in teaching and still others want to incorporate their skills into their work fishing. I love all the visions and all the students – we never have a dull day at the Boat School!
