LCMM Course & Workshop Refund and Cancelation Policy: Should you need to request a refund or switch to another date, please email and we will be happy to help. Refunds are permitted up to one week before the class. After one week before the class, refunds and date changes will not be permitted due to registration minimums. It’s not fair to the other participants for a refund to necessitate the cancellation of a class within one week of the course. If you have questions or special circumstances, please feel free to email or call and we will do our best to accommodate. 

Courses are offered at the LCMM's campus at Basin Harbor or at Perkins Pier in Burlington. Classroom space is available for slide presentations, lectures and discussions. Bring clothes suitable to your course and the weather. Foul weather gear and sun protection are a necessity for on-water activities. Work clothes are appropriate for shop activities. Parking is available at all sites. Bring a lunch and water bottle each day.

All courses are co-educational. The main requirement is a desire to learn. We keep our courses small so that there is plenty of one-on-one time with instructors. A basic knowledge of hand tools is helpful for boat building courses but is not essential. If you have specific questions about a course, please call 802-475-2022 or e-mail and we would be happy to connect you with the instructor.
