Description:
John and Ruth Young established the school in 1991 at Shipwright's Point to offer recreational boat-building courses. In response to repeated requests they registered the school as a training organisation (RTO) and developed a syllabus that was accredited for a Diploma in Wooden Boat-Building in late 1993.

At the end of 2000 the school was sold to Southern Training, Employment and Placement Solutions (STEPS) who closed the course and redeveloped the business as a tourism venture.
