Ramp up to Scamp Camp

Today is the first day of my husband’s two week Scamp Camp at the Northwest Maritime Center in Port Townsend. In the back of the car above are some of the pieces of the Scamp sailboat that my husband has prefinished as part of the build. This was the second of two trips he made to the Maritime Center to deliver parts and assist with setting up the shop for the class. More parts will go with him this morning as he arrives for the class.

Above is a puzzle joint on one of the pieces of the boat-to-be. It’s how NC (numerically controlled) routed plywood panels are joined together.

If you’re remotely interested in this boat-building class, click here to go to a webcam that’s set up above the workshop classroom. If you get a darkened room remember we’re on Pacific Standard time. There is a partially built Scamp in the foreground of the camera’s field. This is what the other piles of lumber are attempting to become. I’ll visit the class late this week and post some shots of where the boats are at the halfway mark.

  1. Looks like Hubby is ready for class! I checked out the webcam. It seems to be down…but, I saw what looked like a still photo of the workshop. Very cool. I’ll look forward to your update on the class. What’s the plan when the scamp is finished?

  2. He’s my hero! Seriously, this is not child’s play. You gotta have heart and talent and skill even with numbers! I’m impressed and can’t wait to see how things progress. I put together a little wooden filing cabinet the other day and almost broke my arm patting myself on the back. Actually, after a few hours on the floor trying to figure out the various pieces (which had letters, not numbers) I could barely get up and could hardly move when I did get up.

    Best wishes in all things nautical!
