John Gardner Small Craft Workshop at WoodenBoat Show, Mystic Seaport

It was a multipurpose trip to the WoodenBoat Show at Mystic Seaport last weekend, show my boat “MALU”, and to participate in the John Gardner Small Craft Workshop.  Mystic is a special place made more so by the WB show and the extra privileges granted by the Seaport.









Morning 1During the show you can stay on the Joseph Conrad for $15 a night for Friday and Saturday nights. You sleep on pipe berths, and give up privacy, but you have hot water showers, and you wake up in the morning on the Museum grounds before the crowds arrive.

Use boats for free. Members of the Traditional Small Craft Association bring their own boats and allow the public to use them, and the Seaport’s Livery boats are available also. You get to try out different types of boats and see the show from the water.Miss SueSaturday 1




















Tour the Museum’s Small Boat Collection, take a self-guided tour or go with the TSCA for a guided tour on Saturday and Sunday afternoons.
