The staff was very helpful in orienting us to this wonderful trip down memory lane. The old mahogany boats were spectacular and the history of the outboard motors was very nostalgic.

Sorry for the typo done by auto-spell check on my previous answer. The price of admission is worth the effort the volunteers make.
