Phil Winger

Phil began his adventure into wooden boatbuilding at North House in 1998. Since then, he has enjoyed the opportunity to build many boats, representing a variety of construction styles, as an instructor at Urban Boatbuilders in St. Paul. His students are encouraged to innovate, improvise, and achieve high standards of craftsmanship. For Phil, one of the most rewarding aspects of the craft is passing it on.
