W. John Craig of Wilmington is building a boat at nearby Masonboro Boat Yard; however, he is using some nontraditional boat building material. The fifty-foot boat will use chicken wire, sand, and cement. Jennewein discusses the project. The ferro-cement technique is not new. The first boat was built in 1848, and countless barges have been built of the material.
