Very fascinating to see the displays and have the ability to watch the building of the projects overhead from the 2nd story viewing area. Staff and students were friendly and willing to answer questions and provide information.

We loved the rowing shells, boat shop and chandlery. Great access to the water and sponsor of many classes as well as the fantastic annual Wooden Boat Festival. This place has something for everyone interested in boats or sailing.
