The apprentices have now completed the rigging section of the course that covers heavy lifting configurations and calculating, as well as understanding different rigging hardware used to lift and move all sizes of yachts, equipment, and supplies. Upcoming apprenticeship workshops include Derecktor Shipyard for blueprint reading and machining fundamentals (hand and power tools and shop equipment) and High Seas Yacht Service presenting on marine hydraulics and running gear/alignment. The YSTAP is growing its member involvement! Please contact for more information.
