CBMM Model Guild President and volunteer Bob Mason holds an example of the half-hull model that will be made in the October 17 & 18, 2015 workshop.

The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum’s Model Guild is offering a beginner’s model boatbuilding workshop from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on October 21and 22, with limited participation and advanced registration needed.

The weekend workshop includes instruction on carving a solid half-hull model of the historic Chesapeake Bay tugboat Delaware. This model is band-sawed from a two-tone wood block and carved to the rounded shape of the Delaware’s hull. The cabin and pilot house are cut from the same pieces. The pieces are then shaped and sanded to a fine finish and then mounted on a baseboard to form a wall display piece.
