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.  One of his favorite projects was a 16-½-foot cedar lapstrake “Dispro” powered by an electric motor embedded in the rudder.  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.
