St. Michael's Maritime Museum on the Chesapeake Bay in Maryland hosted this years Wooden Boat Festival (sponsored by Wooden Boat Magazine.) Here are some images of the Family Boat Building event that coached 52 families to build and launch 52 skiffs in just two and a half days. It was very inspirational, and I'll have more to say about it soon. I took many pictures that haven't yet been developed. For now, here are a few shots I got with a digital camera.  

And Here are more pictures at Bill Young's Seaside Small Craft site. He cut all the parts for the Weekend Dinghies on his ShopBot.
