CLASSSIC WOODEN BOAT COLLECTION

This coming Saturday, 23 February, 2013 between the hours of 10 am and 4 pm the Bellingham Maritime Museum will feature the last showing of the David Berg Classic Wooden Boat Collection. These craft were built by Mr. Berg from drawings which appeared in boating magazines from the 1920’s and 1930’s and are considered by many as true works of art. “Dave Berg is a modern day Leonardo Da Vinci, who creates not only masterpieces of wood construction, but also casts all the metal pieces and fittings, and even builds the trailers” says museum Director Mike Granat.

The Bellingham Maritime Museum is located at 800 Cornwall Avenue. This event is open to the public. Admission is by donation.

    I would like to volunteer. I am retired, 61 Y/O former RN. I own two cedar-on-oak skiffs.

    I built the 13 foot and retored the 16 foot launch. The launch has a 2 cyl deisel inboard with straight shaft.
