Build a Scattery Island Currach

Scattery Island currachs
Monday, September 2, 2013 to Monday, September 16, 2013

Tuition: $1,000 including lodging, instruction and building materials. Financial aid available.

Instructor: James Madigan, of the Ilen Boat Building School in Limerick, Ireland.

The Scholarshipwrights of Nobleboro will host a unique two-week course building two Scattery Island currachs; skin on frame fishing boats from the Shannon River Estuary in County Clare, taught by one of Ireland’s expert currach builders. The finished boats will be raffled off to two lucky course participants at the end of the course.

The course will be held in a former sawmill and boat building school in Nobleboro, Maine on Damariscotta Lake with a fully equipped workshop and comfortable accommodations. Camping is also an option.

We will now build both a 25′ racing currach, the Naomhog, and a 17′ Scattery Island currach. Only the very sea kindly Scattery Island type will be raffled.
