  • Building the Fox Canoe

    March 11, 2022
    Lowell's Boat Shop @ 459 Main St, Amesbury, MA , 01913

    WHEN: Two consecutive three-day weekends, March 11-13 and March 18-20
    Tuition: $750  LBS Members get 10% discount: $675
    The cost for the kit is $1,485 (for both LBS members and nonmembers).
    Total class cost: LBS Member: $2,160        Nonmember: $2,235
    Class begins Friday morning at 8:30am with a brief orientation and overview of what we will accomplish during class time. We’ll work until about 6:00 each evening, and should finish early in the afternoon on Sunday, March 20. Family-built boats or builders with partners are welcome.
    Fox is a decked double-paddle canoe, a boat intended for protected waters along the coast and for mountain lakes. With an 80” long cockpit, Fox is a grand boat for hunting, fishing and trips with a dog or young child seated forward of the paddler. Two accessible watertight compartments add flotation and dry gear storage. There’s ample room for a camping kit. A rotating seat back and caned seat ensure all day paddling comfort. Fox is 14’7” long with a beam of 30″; the finished weight is just over 40 pounds. For more information please follow this link: http://www.billthomaswoodworking.com/fox-canoe-boat-design-detail.html.
    Building the Fox to a high standard takes about 80 hours, including paint and varnish. In a six-day building class the boats are assembled and ready to transport, but students usually finish the epoxy coating, sanding and painting at home. (Once they have the boats home, students will need to provide their own sandpaper, paint, varnish and finishing supplies.) At the end of class all students will have Bill Thomas’s contact information and access to the 21-part building video on the Fox design.

  • Lofting Workshop with Douglas Brooks

    April 30, 2022
    Lowell's Boat Shop @ 459 Main St, Amesbury, MA , 01913

    WHEN: April 30-May 1; 9:00am – 4:30pm each day
    LBS Members: $235; nonmembers $260
    REGISTER HERE
    Lofting is an essential first step in traditional boatbuilding. Working from plans and a table of offsets, boatbuilders draw the lines of a boat full-size, traditionally on a mould loft floor. The drawing ensures all lines are fair in the construction of the moulds around which the boat is planked. The lofting also provides many other details of value to the builder, such as the exact shape of the stem rabbet and plank bevels.
    Lofting also allows the builder the ability to work from hundreds of plans available from institutions such as Mystic Seaport and the Smithsonian.
    In this class students will work at a table height lofting two or more boats. We will also cover half model making, the precursor to lofting, and go over how to move from lofting to building moulds. Printed material will be provided to further reinforce what is learned in the workshop. No prior experience is necessary. Students should bring pencils, a carpenter’s square and a yardstick if possible.

  • Exploring the Past on the Powwow

    June 27, 2022 @ 9:00 am - June 29, 2022 @ 4:00 pm

    Exploringthe Past on the Powwow

    June 27-29, 9AM-4PM each day. Suggested ages 9-14

    MEMBERS:$295      NONMEMBERS: $325

    A tributary of theMerrimack that originates in Danville, NH, the Powwow courses 22 miles beforeflowing through the center of Amesbury. In the early 17th century (andpresumably before that), Native Americans of the Pennacook tribe lived inthe area and used the Powwow River for transportation and fishing. When theEuropeans settled in what is now Amesbury, they were attracted to the Powwowfor the potential of waterpower from the falls (the river drops approximately90 feet through the center of Amesbury, providing ample waterpower for earlyindustrial development).

     

    From the AmesburyIndustrial History Center’s website: “WilliamOsgood built the first sawmill in 1640, and others followed. Of note was theaddition of a grain or grist mill, an oil mill (to press flax or sunflowerseeds), a fulling mill (to wash wool fabric), and even an iron works. By 1792there were at least five dams and an assemblage of over 14 mills that created athriving industrial community. Textile mills first appeared in 1812. By 1880,both sides of the river were lined with a nearly unbroken five-story wall ofbrick wall created by the mills built for the making of cloth. The mills usedwaterwheels and then later turbines connected to gear works, wooden and metalshafts and leather belts to provide the power needed to drive the machinery.There are a few features still standing that are part of Amesbury’s water-powerhistory.”

    Thisexploration will take us from Lowell’s Boat Shop up the Merrimack and into thePowwow River. LBS will partner with the Amesbury Industrial History Center toinvestigate as many remnants of the past as we can find. We’ll practicegrinding corn and possibly make our own pizza crust for lunch! (A pizza lunchwill be provided one afternoon, and is included in the cost of the program.)

    Part scavenger hunt, part rowing adventure, part innovativebuilding project, part environmental awareness lesson -- this program is allabout finding and working with the “treasures” the river sends our way. We’llstart each day rowing along the shorelines, collecting materials that will helpwith our creative endeavors once we get back to the Shop. The afternoons willbe for building. Kids will learn how to use hand tools, and how to securely andsafely put their projects together. They’ll practice presenting their ideas tothe group, and working collaboratively to share knowledge and skills. When theheat of the day requires, we’ll hop back in the boats and row to the sandbarfor a quick dip. We’ll also discuss the possible origins of the materials wefind, and their environmental impact on the river and ocean.
