This roundup of shows and events includes news from The Apprenticeshop and the Marine Equipment Trade Show.

The Apprenticeshop, a school for traditional wooden boatbuilding and seamanship, is hosting “Inside the Apprenticeshop,” an in-depth tour and discussion of the traditional wooden boats under construction by the school’s apprentices on Oct. 13 in Rockland, Maine.

Seventeen apprentices are at work on one of these projects: a 12-foot Barnegat Bay duck boat; a replica of a 15-foot Maine Light Station peapod; the restoration of a 20-foot Alden Indian-class sloop; a 17-foot work skiff designed by Mark Fitzgerald; and two Susan skiffs.

“The marine industry still has much to learn about these technologies,” ICOMIA said in a statement. “The presentations will be of interest to anyone considering investing in hybrids, including boatbuilders, equipment suppliers, systems integrators and naval architects.”
