Capt Jim is definitely old-school. He knows his stuff. The vessels used for teaching are also used for teaching boat maintenance. At the end of a summer of hard sailing the boats show wear but over the winter Jim and the rest of us (his crew) do all the maintenance from scrubbing the decks/barnacles to reglassing what needs to be rebuilt. I feel very confident that I could carry out repairs on my own if necessary after the work we've put in.
