The Center for Wooden Boats, which operates on Lake Union in Washington state, is cutting back its hours and canceling two regattas this year because of funding problems.

"Like all nonprofits, our income is down," Heron Scott, deputy director of the center, told The Seattle Times. "We had a pretty conservative projection, but not conservative enough. Our grant dollars are down, and our corporate sponsorship is down, as well."

In a letter sent to members and volunteers, Betsy Davis, executive director of the center, said it will cut three staff positions, reduce hours of the boat-rental shack and cancel two regattas.

She also said the center will have to move out of the nearby Armory when the Museum of History & Industry moves in. It now has classrooms and offices there.
