Chesapeake Light Craft is once again hosting an open house at their shop in Annapolis, MD and a large gathering of boatbuilders at a park beach in Kent, MD. This is a great event to meet other builders, get tips on boatbuilding, show off your boat, see and try other boats, and generally have fun hanging out with like minded people.

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.

Chesapeake Light Craft's annual gathering of boat builders is happening again this year. I'll be bringing down some boats and signing books.

Here is what John Harris of CLC has to say about the event:
