Scraping after lifting off the mold

Students Jessiah Worley, Chris Lindstam, and Alan Fenwick scrape epoxy off the interior seams of a boat that has recently been lifted off its mold.

The Lake Oswego boat is a wherry developed in Oregon by a Finnish boatbuilder for use on Lake Oswego. Two original boats are known, both maintained by The Center For Wooden Boats in Seattle WA.

The Northwest School of Wooden Boatbuilding will build the boat during the 2014 Contemporary class of cold-molded construction. Instructor Jesse Long will lead students in building the boat using plans developed by CWB in the early 1908’s.
