Best Place To Get Schooled
Watch students restore and build classic wooden boats at this harbor campus, which includes a stone wharf and floating docks where you can check out visiting vessels. Or BYOB: build your own dory, canoe, or kayak during a weeklong class.
Shipwrights are busy restoring wooden sailboats and power boats here, and you’re welcome to observe. The glorious 1885 schooner Coronet is a stunner. You’ll be bitten by the boat-bug and want to sign up for a seminar or workshop.
