  • My husband is building a kayak here - one week course. Teacher is extremely helpful & knowledgeable. Lots of time on your feet - first day was 8 - 6:30 - but enjoyable & well worth it.  more »
  • Pretty cool place! Seems like there are very few places like this anywhere, so people may visit here from quite far away. My Dad is very interested in this kind of stuff (wooden boat/kayak building) and we made sure to stop by and check it out on our trip in July 2019 to the Arsenal game (at FedEx Field) and then Annapolis the next day. We're from New Jersey.
  • A great helpful business, friendly staff have good personality. So if you need plans on building a boat this is the first place you should go. Also good prices on plans and kits
