 About The Center for Wooden Boats:

The Center for Wooden Boats, founded in 1976, provides a gathering place where maritime history comes alive through direct experience and our small craft heritage is enjoyed, preserved, and passed along to future generations. CWB, with locations on Lake Union in Seattle and at Cama Beach State Park on Camano Island, engages visitors in whole body learning by putting the historic boats, oars and paddles, sails and tools in the hands of people who visit.  For more information about what is happening at CWB visit our website, and check in at our blog; Bearings, at .   For additional assistance, and information about radio and television recording at CWB, journalists should contact  Dan Leach at 206-382-2628
