23rd Wooden Boat Show, Mystic Seaport

Every year Wooden Boat Publications in Brooklin, Maine, hosts the Wooden Boat Show. This year is the 23rd edition of this annual show, one of my favourites. After moving around to various locations over the years, it has settled into Mystic Seaport as a pretty much permanent home.

We have exhibited our Paper Jet at this show for the past 7 years and will be there again this year. In 2007 she won the "Outstanding Innovation Award" for introducing many different concepts to wooden boatbuilding. Every year she attracts much attention, standing out as something very different among the mostly traditional craft on display by amateur and professional builders alike.

We will be there again this year. The show runs from 27th to 29th June and your ticket includes full access to the whole of the living museum that is Mystic Seaport. It is well worth the visit. Dehlia and I will both be at the show each day, to show Paper Jet, what other designs we have and to just chat about boats and boating adventures. We hope to meet you there.

Chesapeake Light Craft, the company that cuts and ships our USA kits, will also be there. This is your opportunity to talk to both them and us about a kit that you might like to build. More info on our plywood USA kits.
