In May, high school students in Dillingham, Alaska had the opportunity to build a boat over a weekend. This dual credit course in Basic Welding and Boat Fabrication was offered through UAF Bristol Bay Campus. The course introduced students to welding fabrication done by hand as it applies to boat building, while teaching a variety of skills needed to judge the quality of welding workmanship. This course served as a pilot course for the Ship Build program in Dillingham.
