A group of Falmouth H.S. students have just started building the Morbic 12 designed by Francois Vivier. Students are building the boat at The Compass Project boatshop in Portland. We are building the boat from pilot kit supplied by our friend and neighbor, Clint Chase.
The design employs a very user friendly method of notching the molds and bulkhead supports over the building girder. Compass Project volunteer, Allen Armstrong works with a student to measure and mark the station locations
Clint visited the class the other day to talk about the CNC routing process:
And yes, for not-quite-Halloween Clint actually went as a HUMAN CNC ROUTER--spooky!
