"There is something special about the creation of a wooden boat. It is crafted out of Mother Nature’s living bounty, by artisans following the intricate patterns of ribs and frames drafted by skilled naval architects, and follows in a tradition of form and function that has been nurtured over the centuries in every corner of the globe. But more than this, these boats claim a place in our lives and hearts. They embody the very best of the human journey, combining beauty and strength in ways that are both inspiring and intimate." Please join us at Bell Harbor June 16-17 and feel the magic of wood on water.
