The Scottish Fisheries Museum offers a wooden boat building and restoration traineeship to develop skills for young people willing to deepen their knowledge of traditional boat building.
The course provides a background in traditional wooden boat to keep traditional skills alive as well as maintaining the strong tradition of boat-building in Anstruther.
Thanks to the large Museum collection and co-operation with other bodies, during the traineeship there are many varied learning opportunities such as practical restoration and maintenance work, re-building of boats and focused learning modules and guided tours.
