A team of alumni, lead by Boat School Chief Instructor Sean Koomen, have made it to Tasmania two months ahead of the 2019 Australian Wooden Boat Festival and begun building a Haven 12 1/2 to auction at the festival. The team and build are being hosted at the Wooden Boat Centre in Franklin, 50 miles south of Hobart. This will be the first time team members of the will work with the area’s native celery top pine.
