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.

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.
