Wow! Kids were building a boat in one week! And there's a navigation training available as well. The Maritime Center is a GREAT experience. It's a working center and a good place to volunteer!

Very enjoyable to see works in progress. We go every year to the Wooden Boat Festival. The town has so many boating related sites as well as the boats that are in the harbor

Learn about Thea Foss, the inspiration for Tugboat Annie, see wooden boats, maritime memorabilia, Mosquito Fleet information and more. Several interesting collections. For kids there is a marine life touch tank and harbor clean up education. A must-do when in Tacoma.

Really nice building with wooden boats, racing skulls and more. Fun to see what is new and a great location for having a coffee and watching the boats coming out of the marina also.

My visit to Port Townsend was specifically to see the Wooden Boat Foundation and the beautiful eight-seat boats built by George Pocoik (The Boys in the Boat) for rowing teams all over the US. The local Rat Island Rowing Club has restored some, and is restoring others. Steve is a local builder who has built some beautiful boats. It's a thrill, a pleasure to see this craft continue.
