Gander River Boat Restoration – May 17th- 21st

Come join us for a week of work and learning as we take a Gander River Boat which has long seen its glory day and give it back it’s “health & strength” , at its new ‘home’ – the Wooden Boat Museum of Newfoundland & Labrador.

Donated by Greg Osmond , of Portugal Cove in 2009, this boat needs restoration – to bring it back to its original condition -to give back what it has lost – to put it back in it’s place as a traditional NL Wooden Boat.

Work alongside master boat builder Jerome Canning - learn the history of the Gander River Boat – and its importance in the history of our province. You will leave the week –long workshop with a sense of pride knowing you have helped breathe new life into an old vessel – and helped the WBMNL carry out its mission ...to safeguard the legacy of our provinces wooden boat building traditions!

Workshop will take place at the Museum building in Winterton from Monday May 17th to Friday May 21st. Registration fee, including 5 day building workshop, lunch & snacks is $400/ person . A package including all above as well as weeklong accommodations at the George House B&B or Inn By the Bay is also available – single occupancy = $925.00 - 970.00 or double occupancy = $1100.00 – 1145.00

I am perfectly aware that the majority of Wooden Boat aficionados are sensible folk.
However, I need to point out that I am an amateur wooden boat enthusiast simply writing in order to try to help other amateur wooden boat enthusiasts.
And while I take every care to ensure that the information in DIY Wood Boat.com is correct, anyone acting on the information on this website does so at their own risk.
