Press Release:

    WASHINGTON, N.C.     The Marine Fabricators Association return on Wednesday, December 8 from 9:00 a.m.- 12:00 p.m. at 705 Page Rd. Washington, N.C. to present Beaufort County Community College's boatbuilding program with the final product of two boat "makeovers". Three marine fabricators visited the program in October to take measurements and then digitally modeled a sailboat and a center console to refit them with a new sail and upholstery.

    Presenters from across the region showed students from both BCCC and Washington High School's boat building class proper techniques for measuring and modeling new components and textiles to retrofit two boats. The boats were then taken offsite to have the materials produced and installed.

    Weaver Canvas of Wilmington, Signature Canvas Makers of Hampton, Va., Rick's Custom Marine Canvas & Sail Repair and Fabric Tattoo showed students both manual and digital techniques for measuring boats for new textile components. They brought sewing machines for the students to try their hand at making textiles for the industry.

    The boatbuilding program at Beaufort County Community College started its first classes this August. The was made possible through the support of the Golden LEAF Foundation and the Beaufort County Committee of 100 is helping to temporarily house the program at the Skills Center on Page Rd. The college will use existing funding from the Connect NC Bond as well as new funding from Beaufort County construct a new building on campus to permanently house the program.

    BCCC's program complements the boatbuilding program at Washington High School in an effort to train students interested in high-demand positions in the local boat manufacturing, repair, and sales industry.
