Public tours set for Maine boatyardsPosted on
Maine Built Boats will work with boatbuilders, boatyards and affiliated businesses across the state Aug. 16-17 to present “Open Boatyard Days.”
On those days, the public will be allowed to tour the inside of boatbuilding companies throughout Maine.
“This is a unique opportunity for the public to learn more about boatbuilding in Maine and to see firsthand the passion that boatbuilders have for their art,” said Jane Wellehan, president of Maine Built Boats, in a statement. “Earlier this year, I led a group from Mystic Seaport on a tour of five boatbuilders and the people were incredibly impressed. We want to open these yards up to anyone interested in boatbuilding in Maine.”
The dates of the open house follow the Maine Boats, Homes & Harbors Show, which takes place this weekend in Rockland.
