Boatshop with Benefits

You create your schedule! Last day to register is two weeks before start date
Per week: $404 member, $449 non-member 

Design your own workshop! We offer a space with a workbench that you can use and have access to from 8 AM–8 PM for seven consecutive days. As a participant, you are not limited to just one week but are welcome to rent the space for as many weeks as you need as long as space is available. With the rental of the space, you will also receive one-on-one instruction from the Boatshop Manager, Joel Arrington, between the hours of 9 AM-5 PM. We team up with outside businesses such as Chesapeake Light Craft and Duckworks to help you with project direction and supplies, including boat kits and rigging.
