Compensation/Rate: 10/hr

Job Description: The Shipwright Apprentice Program is a six week program focused on wooden boatbuilding at Independence Seaport Museum's Workshop on the Water.

With six weeks of practicing traditional techniques, apprentices will be better prepared to get into the industry and kick start their careers. 

Two of our apprenticeship positions are made possible thanks to the RPM Foundation. One of the missions of the RPM Foundation is to provide pathways to careers for the next generation of marine restoration and preservation craftsmen through formal training and mentorship. 

The 2018 project is centered on the construction of a 24' Corinthian centerboard sloop. Philadelphian Thomas D. Bowes, Naval Architect, designed this boat, and eight were built in Holland in 1951. They were commissioned for the Corinthian Yacht Club of Essington, PA, to be competitively sailed on the Delaware River. There are three known to exist (one of which was recently restored by the Workshop on the Water and launched in June 2017). This summer's boat will be number four. The construction is African Mahogany planks riveted onto White Oak frames. It will be built for use in the water in hopes of revitalizing interest in the fleet. 

This position runs from July 9, 2018, through August 17, 2018.
