Experienced Boat Builder Required

The Dory Shop in Lunenburg is currently seeking a builder to assist with a significant project repairing/rebuilding a Concordia Yawl. Applicants with less than two years’ experience working with wooden boats need not apply -  experience in the wooden boat building industry is a requirement.

The successful candidate, in addition to having experience in the industry, will be self-motivated and keen to get the job done and possess his or her own tools; won’t be afraid of hard work on cold (or hot!) days; will be able to work unsupervised and step into a leadership role should more builders be required to assist with the job; will possess strong problem-solving skills; will be equally willing to do the mundane and the exciting. The ability to drive a standard shift pick-up truck would be an added benefit.
