CBMM participated at The Wooden Boat Show at Mystic 2011

Looking at some 100 year + originals is part of the draw to a maritime museum

May look too dark in an amateur photo - another reason to see these in person.

The beauty of boats - even a sailboat motoring in the mist is a delight.

The Mystic bridge rises on a schedule, with no preference for what's coming through.

Many modern vessels come in to enjoy the Wooden Boat Show.

Note this vessel is being rowed.

CBMM set up a display for many to enjoy, whether sitting to discuss how to build or standing around to admire some of the boats built at Apprentice For A Day (AFAD), our public building program.

One admirer approaches and we come over to talk about CBMM.

A steady stream of visitors at the CBMM display.

The Morgan Whaler is an impressive display, as much on land now as when she was in the water a few years ago.

Get those potential boat builders in early.
