Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum Shipyard Programs announced

The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in St. Michaels, Md. recently announced its Apprentice for a Day Shipyard Programs, taking place now through April 2019.

Programs take place on weekends and select weekdays, and include a variety of programs for every interest and age. Programs include Timber Frame Raising; Electronic Navigation for Non-Technical People; Boating Essentials; Plane-Making; Intro to Woodworking; Lofting; Open Boatshop; Chart Navigation; Three-Strand Rope Splicing; Recommissioning your Outboard; Bronze Casting; and more.

This year, CBMM’s Shipyard will also host special days when the public can help with the restoration of the 1912 river tug Delaware. Participants will work with CBMM shipwrights to learn some of the fundamentals of boatbuilding by taking part in the stem-to-stern restoration of the historic wooden tug. Participants will have the opportunity to work on the project from lofting to her launch.

CBMM’s Apprentice for a Day Shipyard Programs take place year-round, and offer demonstrations, workshops, intensives with visiting master craftsmen, on-the-water experiences, and customized programming.
