The Year in Review in Pictures


As 2019 draws to a close we reflect on the accomplishments of our young boatbuilders. Please enjoy the photos in the gallery below of our students in the shop and on the water.

2019 Turnover Ceremony


 We concluded our Fall 2019 Youth Boatbuilding Program. Our students completed the planking of another Tidewater 14 and they lifted the boat off of the molds in a 'Tunover Ceremony" to mark the end of the semester. Great job young boatbuilders!
