Boat Fitting 1

Boat Fitting (First Stage)

Our Boat Fitting 1 course  is aimed at those people who are keen to complete fit out of a sail-away.

The course offers a practical introduction to all the skills necessary to achieve a fully lined-out boat from a bare shell. Whenever possible we spend a high proportion of the course “on the tools” giving students a chance to experience using a wide range of tools.

Because we know that a course like this is only the beginning of a self build we encourage students to contact their instructor afterwards when they are actually in the build if the have any questions or need advice.

This course is the first in our Boat Building suite of courses which include  Boat Fitting (second Stage) , Boat Electric Systems (Design and Installation) and Boat Plumbing Heating and Engine Installation

These course can be booked individually, however if you book two or more courses at the same time they attract a significant discount.

1: Ballasting including types and installation

2: Floor bearers and battening cabin sides and deck head i.e.




3: Lining windows and portholes including hand routing linings
