Module B:
Would you like to gain more knowledge about building a  Wood-core (Strip plank) boat?
During module B, for this group of students, there is the option of having a boat with a small cabin built, using this building method.
During this process you will  encounter all the techniques you will need to know for building a  larger ship. 
The course will be personalized as much as possible 
For those who want, it is the possible to go a little deeper in the theory of boat building and design
During this course we will work with a group of 5 students.
Course duration will be 10 days.

Module C:

Module C is comparable with Module B. The difference will be in the amount of students that apply for the course. In the case that more courses of Module B would run at the same time it's possible to choose to combine 2 or more courses and build one bigger boat.
For example, it's possible that one group works on it on Friday and Saturday, while the other group works on it on Monday and Tuesday.
In this option everyone will be involved in all parts of the building process and gets a bit more the feeling of building a bigger boat.
It is also possible to combine it with a course for interior building.
Module C is only given in consultation with all concerned.
