Model Wooden Boats

Jim is bringing a few pieces from his collection of over 30 operating model wooden boats.  All the lumber in them is from Parkerville Wood Products.  From his quality craftsmanship you may think these are just displays, but as Jim says, he builds them to run, get wrecked and he fixes them to run again.

 

FULL Size Wooden Boat

Deb has won the best owner built boat and sail award 2 years ago at the Wooden Boat Show in Mystic, CT.  We have a posting on our site under Marine products regarding this accomplishment.  This year she has made another boat and will have it here on display.  The story behind her motivation is more captivating than the boat itself.  DO NOT leave without talking to Deb.
