Program participants will join CBMM Boatyard Program Manager Jenn Kuhn to learn more about the art of finishing on a boat. Participants will get first-hand experience learning how to properly prepare surfaces, addressing any problem areas, and applying varnish or paint to the surfaces, with practice on CBMM’s small craft vessels.

The cost of the workshop is $45 for CBMM members and $55 for non-members, with registration made by contacting Allison Speight at aspeight@cbmm.org or 410-745-4941.
