I used to walk by Community Boat Building for years to and from work. Hmm, gotta stop in some day, they are doing great things for children in the community. Lo and behold that day came last year... my life has been changed... more on that story later. For today, we have new boats, old boats, painted boats, fresh boats, partial boats, boat parts, and boat models. We have pine planks, pine seats, oak frames, oak trim, mahogany ply, bronze fasteners, cotton, and hand tools galore. A full shop. Walking in, if you close your eyes — the rest of your senses know something special is going on. Vessels for learning.
In the beginning... oak and pine fitted to the mold.
