L e e believes we are a l l students and teachers to one another and that everyone has experience to share, young and old. The school is committed to the teaching and sharing of knowledge from the marine trades, through instruction and hands on experience and, to share the depth of our expertise and wisdom. The school feels a professional obligation to teach the skills needed in today's world of maritime activities and professions.
Classes and seminars are designed for those. A l l levels of relevant study are provided.

But at the Center for Wooden Boats' shoreline, theory ends, improbability begins and the shop lights have been burning into the wee hours.
Since January, a 12' Whitehall and 13' Chamberlain D o r y S k i f f have been restored and added to our livery fleet. The work is being done by dozens of skilled volunteers, supervised by C a r l L i n d , Center for Wooden Boats' boatwright. Carl conducted a restoration workshop in M a r c h in order to have a group follow the whole procedure of examining a sick boat, analyzing its problems, planning its restoration and implementing the plan. The patient was an 18' Concordia Sloop Boat. It now has new frames, floor timbers, centerboard trunk, transom and coaming.
H a l Hanson donated this fine vessel to us, in the hopes that he was also getting rid of its' maintenance headaches. However, H a l voluntarily joined the rigging crew, and in addition took the bowsprit home for a winter session of scraping, sanding and varnishing. Amie is just about ready to sail again.

It was at this time I learned that this client had never been out in a boat on the water until he came along for a sail at the Center. He further explained that going out on the water actually helped him feel very relaxed and distracted from the details of his life.

Weather permitting, they are given sailing instruction. The following is a letter recently received from Bailey-Boushay House:.
It probably took the Herreshoff shop about 2 weeks to build this boat. A n y o n e planning to restore a classic boat to its original c o n d i t i o n should read R o n ' s chronicle and believe it. If time is a factor in considering whether to restore, then don't! Fitted and installed cockpit sole beams, margin and floorboards. Fitted aft bulkhead and reinstalled original deck planking. Caulked foredeck planks. L a i d new canvas on fore and after decks. Note: The watertight integrity of the foredeck and forward bulkhead was restored.
A watertight closure plate is installed in the forward bulkhead access cutout when underway. There are a few things that probably could use a little more attention, but I am the only one who knows what they are and you're not here to inspect. As you already know, the boat sails beautifully and attracts a lot of attention, even here in San Diego. Few know what it is though. Refinished mast and spars. G o t out, clamped and fitted Note: H a l f green or air dried white oak was not available in lengths required for the coamings in the San D i ego area.
The best I could do was to scarf KD vertical grain white oak. I prebent the stock by steaming and clamping over a trap to achieve some bend and twist but not much. Getting the correct angle and bevel along with length to fit these coaming was easily the toughest part of the whole project. Removed trim, cockpit coaming and sole, seat knees, etc. Note: It was not possible to brace boat to overhead structure to maintain shape due to work location, so internal bracing along with exterior chocking was used.
Removed foredeck. Removed stem. Removed broken fasteners from the stem and filled holes with whittled pegs set in epoxy. Faired stem rabbet. F i l l e d fastener holes in hood ends of planking and reinstalled stem. Note: A mixture of West System epoxy, micro-balloons and micro-fibers mixed to achieve the approximate density of northern white cedar was used to f i l l fastener holes i n the planking.
Removed after deck. Split out every other frame, removed associated floors and filled fastener holes. Smoothed up top of keel, F i t new air dried white oak floors temporarily fastened to keel using lag screws. Steamed and bent in new frames using green white oak. Repeated for remaining frame stations.
Lifted boat off lead keel, fastened floors to keel, refilled voids with approximately 50 lbs. B u i l t up and faired keel rabbet. F a i r e d floors in way of garboards. Painted a l l fraying surfaces with red lead. Spiled, got out and hung new northern white cedar garboards. Spiled and fitted forward bulkheads. This is the only instance where original materials was knowingly not used.
Bulkhead was canvas covered for appearance. F i l l e d plank fastener heads. Sealed seams with Interlux underwater seam c o m pound. Primed planking with red lead below the waterline. Plugged fastener holes, fitted grav-. Faired hull planking, sanded, primed and painted hull. Fitted, varnished and installed toe rails, cockpit trim, etc. Fitted redesigned side seat center knees to eliminate the stress points where the knees attach to the frames.
W i r e brushed available original hardware. Obtained replica replacements for missing hardware from Bristol Bronze Roger Winiarski. Installed hardware, set up rigging, reeved running rigging, etc. M o s t of the work was accomplished at Koehlers Boatyard on Shelter Island where I set up a canvas cover over an outdoor workspace. The project spanned over three years and required about 1, hours of actual work plus about an equal number of hours messing around.
The charts are on the table and the voyage is being planned! The museum along with the Center for Wooden Boats and Northwest Seaport w i l l tell the story of our maritime past. This rich and colorful history began with the beautifully crafted cedar dugout canoes of the native people. Sailing ships brought the early explorers in late 's and early 's. The first steam vessel, Beaver arrived in and early settlers also started arriving in every area of the Northwest.
They needed transportation - steamboats answered the c a l l and eventually became so numerous they were fondly called the "Mosquito Fleet. Colleen Wagner The shipping trade flourished as d i d the fishing industry and boat building. Thousands of great ships and small boats were built. Ships came for cargo from around the world. A way of life, in fact, life itself, and the growth of our towns and cities were dependent upon and influenced by our great maritime past. P S M H S first raised sail in as a non-profit organization and dropped anchor since at the M u s e u m of History and Industry also exhibiting in a storefront at Chandler's C o v e , South Lake Union , members have worked hard to preserve, exhibit, research, publish a quarterly, maritime journal, present an educational program monthly and assemble a resource library.
Our knowledgeable members represent every area of the maritime w o r l d and w o u l d love to pass it on to others. The Puget Sound Maritime M u s e u m. Classes w i l l be offered in sailor's arts like model ship building, singing sea chanties, scrimshaw, putting a ship in a bottle, knot tying, and making ditty bags and sails. A small theater w i l l present one act plays, lectures, and demonstrations. A library w i l l make volumes of information on maritime culture, books, charts, ship's lines and photos available to our community.
A n d with the small craft of the Center for W o o d e n boats, the large vessels of Northwest Seaport, and our archival resources we w i l l be able to offer our community the most inclusive maritime heritage encounter on the West Coast. The Puget Sound Maritime M u s e u m w i l l present history in creative formats. Imagine a full time actor bringing people back in time to aboard the Beaver as she steamed into Elliott Bay for the first time. The Puget Sound Maritime M u s e u m w i l l also be an inspirational tool for teachers covering the history and the environment of small craft and large vessels in the Northwest.
We truly have a heritage to be proud of. Anyone who would like to sign on as part of the crew and help make this challenging voyage a success w i l l be most welcome aboard. It w i l l take many hands! Box,Seattle,WA , T h e m i s s i o n of the Center for Wooden Boats is to preserve and interpret our maritime small craft heritage.
We encourage our visitors to use a good portion of our collection of historic boats. That is what these boats were built for, and direct experience is the most challenging and long lasting means of learning. T h e Center for W o o d e n B o a t s C W B is committed to being a resource, serving the whole rainbow of our community. In order to do that we have initiated programs to encourage those people who w o u l d not normally be involved with small craft to come down and participate in a heritage we all share.
Interspersed in this report are unedited comments from the journals o f the " A l l A b o a r d " summer school students of June-August I learned about some different kinds of boats today. We went out sailing for an hour and learned to go in circles.
Boats are interesting. C W B provides an environment free of a l l the negative factors associated with failure. It is on the water. There are no streets, alleys, garbage cans, cars or telephone; no police sirens, shouts in the dark, or shots in the dark. Today I steered a boat and learned how to set up a jibe successfully. I also learned how to screw in screws really tightly and how to use new tools. I especially enjoyed woodworking today. The floats are tippy. The boats are even tippier. The w i n d is cold, the water is cold.
These are the challenges at C W B , that one must be prepared for. Questions are encouraged. T e s t i n g oneself with the oars and sheets are encouraged. Students figure how to deal with wind and waves, cold and fatigue. It is a trial and error process. The environment is a perfect medium for self-growth and rejuvenation. Today we had Okay day. We learned more than we did the other day. I learned about sailing and about how to make ropes. We had to make up a design how to make these ropes. So we drew picture of little machines. The students are learning the hard skills of sailing and rowing, knotwork and woodwork.
They are also learning the values of teamwork and the responsibilities of leadership as they rotate at the helm of the rowing g i g or sloop. We went in a row boat about 5 of us. We learned new commands and rowed. Then we went sailing. It was fun A voyage on a four oared g i g or a 30' sloop involves using an encyclopedia of stored knowledge.
It includes applied physics, algebra, geometry and trigonometry. It expands their language skills. They gain an appreciation of our small craft heritage and how a hands-on his-. Today we finished the rope maker and it worked c o o l then we went sailing it was great w i n d and I loved it.
