Established in 2004 in the Pendleton Building, the Boat Shop is home to a well-run work shop that is filled with equipment and tools designed to assist our volunteers woodworkers. The RFM Boat Shop is open and busy on Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 9:00am-12:00pm. The volunteers work at building, repairing, re-conditioning and restoring wooden boats that have ties to the area.

If you have an interest in joining this exciting work, you do not need specific skills or experience, only the motivation to help preserve these wooden boats that are so important to the area.
