The Landing School hired Clint Chase as a wooden-boat building instructor. Chase has more than six years of boatbuilding and instruction experience, and he will be responsible for instructing the Arundel, Maine-based school’s spring start students in small boat building.

Chase, a former high school science teacher and weather technician on Mount Washington, is also a 2006 graduate of The Landing School’s cruising boats program. After he graduated, he fused his education background with boatbuilding when he became head boat builder/program manager for the Compass Project in Portland, Maine. During that tenure he supervised and built more than 100 small boats with children and adults. While at the Compass Project, he also started a successful program with area high school students aimed at helping them find employment in the marine industry.

In addition to his work at the Compass Project, Chase has taught at Lowell’s Boatshop and the WoodenBoat School.
