Dave Pippin - Boat Building Teacher for Young Achievers School
Prior to taking the job with CBB at the Young Achievers Science and Math Pilot School, Dave lived on an island in the Salish Sea. His love of boatbuilding grew as a volunteer at the Center for Wooden Boats in Seattle and in the schools where he previously taught students to learn the craft. After reading a WoodenBoat article about what was then called Boston Family Boatbuilding (WB #206, Jan/Feb 2009), Dave contacted our founder, John Rowse, about sharing ideas. John sent Dave a plan of the Periwinkle, and Dave built it with his middle school students. Eventually the two boatbuilding teachers met, and Dave volunteered for a day in the old shop at the Charlestown Navy Yard. Now Dave builds about a dozen boats a year with 5th graders at Young Achievers.
