As a former high school teacher with 26 years experience, I have built boats for educational summer camps, alternative schools, and even traveled along with Paddle Oregon to build a boat during that five-day trip in 2015. I also work with P:ear (Project: education, art and recreation), a mentoring organization for homeless youth, teaching them the art of Hazelwood boat building. Together, we recently constructed a beautiful 15-ft. Irish currach hybrid. At the end, the curragh sold at auction to support P:ear.

I also build boats with individuals and couples.  In addition,  I can build a custom-designed boat to meet your specific needs.


Contact me with questions and for pricing.


Below is a gallery of photos of the teaching and construction process of the P:ear currach.

See the P:ear Boatworks page for more photos and details on this project.
