We were able to sit down with Kaleb to ask him some questions about being a student at Great Lakes Boat Building School.

Q.) What is the most important or valuable thing you learned at Great Lakes Boat Building School?

A.) It is important to be a good team member.  Workers need to be able to work with others to be able to complete a project of task on time and with good quality.


Q.) What do you love the most about your current job?

A.) The best part about my job at Ramsey Brothers is that I am not doing just one thing. I am responsible for restoration, frame building, and finishing.  At Dart Boat Company we all work together and we get to do many jobs throughout the boat building process.

Q.) What do you think was the biggest benefit of attending Great Lakes Boat Building School?

A.) The biggest benefit about attending GLBBS is that you learn many different ways to work on boats and and you learn about different types of construction, how to install engines, and complete quality finish work. I am proud of what I learned at GLBBS and how I am able to use it at Ramsey Brothers and Dart Company today, to make and restore the highest quality classic boats.
