2017 Wooden Boat Festival has ended

Jay Smith

Jay Smith apprenticed to master builders in Norway and the Faroe Islands and has specialized in Nordic lapstrake construction for over 30 years (seeWoodenBoat #234). Regular trips to Scandinavia over the years have enabled Jay to expand his research on Scandinavian-related boatbuilding techniques. At his Aspoya Boats yard in Anacortes, Washington, he keeps busy with new construction, repairs, and interior refits. His main focus, however, is on traditional Scandinavian designs including prams, faerings, Folkboats, and, currently, a 56′ replica of a Viking ship. As a way of passing on the knowledge that was passed on to him, Jay teaches boatbuilding in his own shop, and has lectured at The Center for Wooden Boats in Seattle and taught at the Northwest School of Wooden Boat Building
