OkoumeFest Boat Lineup

"Okoume" is the plantation-grown African hardwood used in tens of thousands of CLC's build-your-own-boat kits. OkoumeFest features an open house with technical seminars on Friday at the CLC plant in Annapolis, and on Saturday an on-the-water rendezvous at Matapeake State Park on Kent Island.

For those of you who just can't have too many sources of hand made boat stuff coming into your smart phones and have a softspot in your heart for lo fidelity images that look like they were taken with a Polaroid and stuck to the fridge for 35 years; I've started posting the occasional photo on Instagram. The subject matter will tend to be related to boat building, woodworking, using wooden boats etc. We'll see what develops.
