21 years ago I helped eight junior high school kids build a little wooden dinghy from scratch. We worked out of a defunct shop classroom and floated it in the pool at the basement of the school at the end of the year. It was thrilling -- for all of us. Since then we have served thousands of young people through our boatbuilding, environmental science, sailing, and social work programs and are currently in the process of building our 50th boat -- a Herreshoff 12 1/2! Please help me to reach my goal of $21,000 to recognize my 21 years of doing this work!
