I have known Ed through the college for years, calling him an expert is no exaggeration. It is a great program at CFCC and is a fun course to take even if you don’t intend on making wood boat building a career!

The show is great every year with several restored Sea Skiffs (Built for many years by Tom Simmons out in Myrtle Grove)along with reproductions of the Simmons plus many other small craft built locally and along the Carolina coast

PS: I’m no relation to Tom Simmons
