Participants learn woodcraft, the operation of power tools, and the camaraderie and satisfaction of creating a wooden boat from scratch. VCB’s fleet of more than 30 wooden boats were mostly built in our 7,500 square foot shop on Pier 40 by community and student volunteers. Sessions are free, no advance registration is required, and no experience is necessary.
Feeling up to the challenge? Sign-up for a boat building program at Hudson River Park and try your hand at this time-honored tradition.
