Building  The Spirit of Westport, one plank at a time has been a great project! Dharma Voyage along with many generous volunteers throughout the Westport Community work with students in a hands-on environment to build a boat and learn many technical and historical details.  Twenty four students are participating in this exciting class.  Small groups of about eight students have been working with Ben Booth and Jon Aborn four days a week in the boat shop.   The groups rotate through the schedule, building upon each others’ progress.  Titcomb Brothers Manufacturing on Forge Road has kindly donated the space for our project.  The grand voyage launch will be in the Spring!
