Maritime Mentorship Program
The Maritime Mentorship Program, the BoatShop's newest program, is designed to pair master boat builders and boat restorers with college-aged youth to teach them boat building, boat repair and boat restoration skills, techniques and practices. The first project, MMP Project #1 -- 1964 Chris-Craft Super Sport, launched in April 2015. The second project, construction of an Iain Oughtred-designed Gannet Sailing Dinghy, began in June 2016.
