Come to Annapolis, see the Chesapeake Light Craft shop, watch boatbuilding demonstrations and then try out boats. Okoumefest is held over two days, Friday is in Annapolis at the CLC shop, where there will be a tour of the facility (you can see there CNC machine cut kits), I will do a demonstration of some sort (usually how you shouldn't fiberglass outside in the sun), and others will demonstrate other techniques to build boats in less than favorable conditions. After the demonstrations there will be food. CLC hosts a BBQ.

Meet at the BeachOnce again we will gather to see what everyone has accomplished over the winter. Every year for over 10 years we have been meeting at the beach at Bluff Point State Park in Groton, CT to talk about making kayaks. If you are interested in making your own kayak, just like to look at kayaks or have built your own you are welcome. Bring a boat if you have one, but it doesn't have to be home made.

Every year since 1998 Chesapeake Light Craft has been hosting a gathering of small boat builders. On Friday they have an open house at their shop with demonstrations and a cookout. On Saturday it is on a beach on Chesapeake Bay.

I'll be bringing some boats down and giving some sort of demonstration this year. Come visit, bring a boat if you've got one, or just test boats you may want to build.
