Brewer Hawthorne Cove Marina, Salem,

The Festival was launched in 1983 under the auspices of the Boston Educational Marine Exchange, a non-profit, membership association founded by visionary architect/mariner Carl Koch in 1976 to revitalize Boston Harbor.

The idea for the festival was hatched by Pat Wells of BEME as a vehicle for bringing the public back to the Harbors of Massachusetts, celebrating and preserving maritime heritage and promoting the need for boating facilities and public landings on our coastline.

The Festival has been held in Boston, Charlestown, Quincy, and Salem.

While the original system worked quite well as a one-off post, it didn’t allow for updating or posting new photographs etc.

That is why I have introduced the new Your Pages.

This is new ‘Community’ platform is for 2018.

It is designed to put you in control of your content, make it easier to for you to tell us about your Wooden Boat, upload photos etc. and most of all post updates as and when you wish to.

There is also a forum where you can ask any questions you may have about Wooden Boats and join in the conversations.
So, please come on over and join our community of likeminded Wooden Boaters.
