Penobscot Marine Museum

The Penobscot Marine Museum will host 2 forums on boatbuilding at its Searsport, Maine, gallery.

Thursday, April 10, 2014, at 7:00 pm

Small Wooden Boats: with boatbuilders Dale Cottrell, Greg Rossel, Richard Stanley, Chris Stickney and others.

  • Join the small-boat builders of Penobscot Bay who create the craft that allow us enjoy a day of rowing and sailing, and trailer it home at the end of the day. Expect a lively discussion of updated designs versus staying true to tradition, power tools versus hand tools and how to walk away with the boat of your dreams.

Boat Builders of Mount Desert Island: with builders Richard Helmke, and Richard and Ralph Stanley and others.

  • Mount Desert Island is home to high-end yacht builders, lobsterboat builders, and traditional sloop builders. Join us for a discussion of how a 108-square-mile island’s boat designers can cater to lobstermen, summer residents and everyone in between.

The talks will be held at the Penobscot Marine Museum’s Main Street Gallery, 40 East Main Street, Route One, Searsport, Maine. Tickets are $8 members and $10 non-members. For more information go to the Museum’s website or call (207) 548-2529.
