Emphasis is on discussion and the sharing of your experiences with the craft. Occasionally the group will engage in hands-on model making in the boatyard shops.

Willing participants will collaborate on building a scale model of the Gig Harbor iconic fishing vessel Avalon as a first joint Modeler project.
