Join us and learn the skills of traditional boat building and sailing.

Become a member and work alongside skilled professionals who are more than willing to share their expertise with you. Our members are from all walks of life, with all levels of woodworking, boatbuilding, and boating experience. The Community Boat Shop is located on the bluffs near the Atlantic Ocean. This makes for a unique working environment.
