Chesapeake Light Craft, the boat kit experts, will be running dozens of their popular Build-Your-Own-Boat classes at locations around the country in 2014, including four sponsored by the Wooden Boat Foundation at the Northwest Maritime Center in Port Townsend. Students in 2014’s first class, beginning on May 12, will build the popular 17-foot Northeaster Dory, the same model used in Rick Clark’s newsmaking "Row to Canada for ALS" fundraiser in August 2012. The Row to Canada for ALS effort has raised more than $8,000 to date and sparked the film “Rowing Smitty,” which made its premier at the Seattle Art Museum in June 2013, and a soon-to-be-published book of the same name. The Northeaster Dory is not only well suited to rowing but also to sailing with the addition of an optional sailing rig. Other 2014 boatbuilding classes offered by CLC through the Wooden Boat Foundation include one focusing on the Annapolis Wherry, in single or tandem configurations, beginning July 14; and a late-October class on dinghies, where participants may choose an 8-foot Eastport Pram or the larger Passagemaker, both of which come in standard, one-piece models or take-apart versions, and both of which also may be outfitted for sailing with an optional additional kit.
In CLC classes, talented professional instructors help students assemble their own boats from start to finish. While CLC's precision-cut boat kits are intended for first-time boatbuilders working at home — more than 30,000 completed CLC boats are on the water — a classroom setting still has its advantages.

An outboard motor specifically is used to propel a small boat, and most commonly is found attached to the back of a dingy or a small fishing boat. Over the last 19 years, CLC boatbuilding classes have launched more than a thousand wooden boats and introduced thousands of students to the joys of boatbuilding. He and five others rowed three of the dories 135 miles up the length of Puget Sound from Vaughn Bay to British Columbia to symbolically recreate a spur-of-the-moment adventure he and a friend undertook just out of high school in 1970.
The fundraising efforts also earned Clark and his team special awards from the Evergreen Chapter of the ALS Association. It’s a capacious, stable boat with a substantial payload for passengers or gear for camp-cruising and adventuring.
In 2013 CLC ran more than 30 classes at sites in Maine, Connecticut, Maryland, Michigan, and Washington. Students work in lavishly equipped shops with a professional boatbuilder at their side and enjoy the positive energy (and extra hands) of a group setting.

After Clark and his companions built two of the three boats used for the trip in the same class in Port Townsend in May 2012 and the third at home a few weeks later, they set off again from Vaughn Bay, rowing in memory of the friend, who had succumbed to ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease), and to raise funds for the ALS Association.
