Two model kit options are available, with one geared towards kids and one towards adults. Recommended minimum age is 12+ with a parent or guardian attending with anyone under 16 yrs.  Models kits are the Dumas Ace and Dumas Junior sailboats.


I’m Paul Stepp, and I’ll be your instructor for this course. I teach automotive repair full-time for ASUMH, and in my spare time I build a variety of model types, including large-scale radio-controlled ships, submarines, and various types of vessels. I specialize in sailing yachts and Chris Crafts. I also enjoy camping, continued education (psychology), and spending time with family and friends. I love animals, and currently have a curly-haired black (Chesador) lab named Rosie. I look forward to working with all of you!
