Student Johnathan Ishmael at work cutting the rabbet on the stem of the Hacker-21 Special.
This 21-foot runabout was designed by John L Hacker in the mid-1930’s while working in Detroit Michigan for the Canadian Greavette Company.
The Class of 2014 has been commissioned to build the boat. The new boat will have a bottom laminated of mahogany over marine plywood and mahogany sides and decks. It will be powered by a Crusader 5.7-liter engine.
The Northwest School of Wooden Boatbuilding is located in Port Hadlock WA and is an accredited, non-profit vocational school. You can find us on the web at www.nwboatschool.org .
Our mission is to teach and preserve the fine art of wooden boatbuilding and traditional maritime crafts.
We build both commissioned and speculative boats to US Coast Guard standards while teaching adult students the traditional wood and wood composite boatbuilding skills they will need to work in the marine trades. We sell our boats to help support the School. Please feel free to give us a call should you like to discuss our building a boat for you.
You can reach us via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling us at 360-385-4948.
