BLUE HILL – WoodenBoat Publications of Brooklin, in collaboration with Hewes and Company of Blue Hill, invite the public to a slideshow and boat kit demonstration by famed Scottish boat designer Iain Oughtred at Hewes and Company’s Blue Hill shop on 419 Ellsworth Road from 3:30-6pm, Friday, July 16th.
Fresh from his appearance as guest of honor at the 19th Annual WoodenBoat Show in Mystic Seaport, Mystic, CT, Iain Oughtred is visiting the Blue Hill Peninsula and its many boatyards. Instrumental in Britain’s wooden boat revival, this dinghy racer turned boat builder and designer has developed a devoted following both for the beauty of his designs and the quality of his detailed drawings. He will present a slide show of selected designs and take questions. Prior to the presentation, the crew from Hewes and Company will demonstrate the CNC machining process by cutting out an Oughtred-designed TAMMIE NORRIE kit. Refreshments will be served.
