Upcoming Events


April 3, 2018 Meeting:
Who: Bill Taft
What: Boat building
Where: 180 Studios, 150 Todd Road, Santa Rosa - directions below
When: Tuesday, April 3rd, 2018 @7PM

Over the past few years, two of our program presenters have described their boat building experiences. Both showed the hull turnover as one of the memorable occasions of the building process. That hit home with Bill Taft, as he has turned over the completed hull -- a milestone in the building process -- five times. He will share those experiences in a slide presentation documenting the construction of two of the five sailboats he has built. Bill will also briefly discuss boat design, materials, and construction methods.

 Bill is a graduate mechanical engineer who spent his career as a design specialist in component and product design. He has a long history with the SCWA, as an officer and in association with the Artistry in Wood shows. Currently he is engaged in making marquetry art, as he doesn’t feel the need to build any more boats!
