During the long cold winter we though there might be some of you interested in trying your hand at a little boat building. We are taking on a small skiff much like the ones that Warren learned to build from his Grandfather and that he and I have built for many years. It will be a chance to pick up a new skill in a safe environment and hopefully will encourage your own inner boat builder.
Lena Blanche is tucked away for the winter in her cozy house just waiting for the cold winter months to pass so that we can work on her again.
We hope to hear from you
