Boat Building

Boatbuilder Charlie Beyer talking to students about the boatbulding process, alongside several in-progress sailboats and supplies.

July 5, 2023 , 10:00 am – 3:00 pm


Watch boats being built! Boat builder Charlie Beyer will be in the boat shop on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays from 10am through 3pm working on a batch of Split Rock Sailing Dinghies, which are a lightweight composite sailboat designed for us by Jim Donovan. Drop in to watch a little bit of the process, ask questions, and learn about this craft. These boats will join the Museum’s sailing fleet.

This is a free drop-in event. Specific occurrences might be cancelled due to weather or scheduling conflicts. We’ll do our best to update any cancellations within a 24-hour window.
