Pygmy Boat Building Classes


Pygmy classes are given over a six day period, each day beginning at 9 am and running until about 5 pm. The seventh day is reserved for pick-up of the kayak in the morning.  Students will enjoy expert instruction and the use of the NW Maritime Center's beautifully equipped shop space.
