Boatbuilding

Members join together to assist each other with the creation of brand new "Traditional Small Craft" and related accessories.

Over the years we've built railbird skiffs, a variety of dories, a rowing and sailing skiff, several Whisp designs, Six-Hour canoes, a computer designed Wineglass Dory, and two replica Delaware Duckers, one contemporary and one traditional.

Working either alone or as a part of a team, the membership builds, sails and maintains their boats as a link to an earlier and easier time. As a part of our building program, the chapter invites and encourages beginner and novice "wannabe" boatbuilders to learn the crafts and skills of small boat construction in both the modern and old fashion methods.

Members have also spent many hours volunteering at the Workshop on the Water at the Independence Seaport Museum at Penn's Landing in Philadelphia.
