Center for Wooden Boats Maritime Museum
The Center for Wooden Boats Maritime Museum offers an opportunity to experience the dimensions of an earlier time, to put your hands on the oars of a graceful pulling boat or the tiller of a traditional wooden catboat. With help from master craftsmen, you can learn to steambend an oak frame, cast an oarlock, sew a canvas ditty bag, splice a line or caulk a seam.
The Center for Wooden Boats is a hands on maritime museum. Its purpose is to preserve a rich, vital and varied small craft heritage by preserving both the artifacts and the time-tested maritime skills. Its aim is to provide an educational adventure, through participation, in the small craft heritage.
