Woody Boater is proud to break the news of a new Antique & Classic Boat school. This new school will be focusing on Antique & Classic Wood runabouts, utilities and hydro’s, said founder Pat Curtin. “We wanted to create a place were people can learn the tricks of the trade from back in the day, from some of the top guys in the country. This is not a museum and we are not restoring bottles of fine wine. It’s old school.” Old School Boat School. The first classes start this spring. Located were else, but on Golden Pond. AKA, New Hampshire. School creator Pat Curtin is known through out the hobby for his work on the films On Golden Pond, Striking Distance, Water World, and Interview With A Vampire.

Re-planking, Bottoms and building those cool hydro’s. From weekend courses to week long boondoggles. There are also plans in place that you can bring your boat to work on.

Your kidding … right! It’s all old school.
