Chesapeake Light Craft is always a big attraction at the Boat Show.  The stitch and glue kits they offer are easy to build with step by step instructions using MAS Epoxy to put them together.  The CLC booth is always busy and a fun place to learn about how a novice can build a wooden boat by themselves.

 

 

 

At the CLC booth, they schedule demos throughout the show during the afternoon hours. They provide great demonstrations on how to work with MAS Epoxy wetting out fiberglass, filling joints and other common applications of boat building. Therefore, answering questions for beginners or professionals.

Our first stop in Port Townsend was at Redfish Kayaks. We met with the owner Joe Greenley and helped him out with a few gallons of epoxy for his upcoming class. Joe builds his beautiful kayaks with MAS Epoxies and supplies epoxy at his shop if you are local to the area and in need of epoxy.

Overall, it was a great weekend in Port Townsend meeting a variety of woodworkers, boat builders and furniture designers exchanging conversation and ideas of current and future projects.
