Scenes from Meet at the Beach 2014

Attendence was good at this year's Meet at the Beach at Bluff Point State Park in Groton, CT. I didn't have time to count how many people attended, but I did take some pictures plus the above bits of video. Below are some of the photos.

 

Evening Paddling in the Mystic River Tandem

I love kayaking, but there is something about a canoe. We had family down for the Memorial Day weekend. After everyone left and the dishes were cleaned, we decided to put the canoe in the water and go for a paddle. A kayak always seems to take a little bit more forethought, if only to get the right clothes on.

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.

home made kayaks on the beach in Groton

For more years than I can remember wooden kayak enthusiasts have met at the beach at Bluff Point State Park in Groton, Connecticut. We will be gathering again this year. Come see what builders have made over the winter. Test paddle kayaks that you are interested in building. Talk to other people who like wooden kayaks.

 

Time Lapse of Closing the Bottom of a Strip-Built Row Boat

I'm working on a new strip-built sliding seat rowing boat. I'm really excited about the design and am impatient to get it on the water.

Guillemot Kayaks at Maine Boats Homes and HarborsSummer in Maine is not always sunny, but even when it isn't it is a great place to commune with boats. The Maine Boats Homes and Harbors Show in Rockland always has a diverse assortment of beatiful boats as well as everything from beach glass jewelry to diesel engines (something for everyone).
