MHN Welcomes The Ancient Boat Society

Maritime Heritage Network welcomes a new organization member, the Ancient Boat Society of Everett, Wash. The Ancient Boat Society is a not-for-profit organization that preserves maritime heritage through several programs, including restoration of the 1928 Lake Union Dreamboat Barbalee, and support for the restoration of the art deco ferry Kalakala. The group operates The Wooden Boatyard, a low-cost restoration facility for wooden boat enthusiasts, with space for 50 boats up to 40 feet in length. Plans call for a 2,400 square-foot community woodworking shop at the Mukilteo, Wash. facility.
