While our founding was based on the preservation, restoration and love of vintage wood boats, the reality is we have become much, much more.

With over 30 programs, events and community activities every summer, we provide hands-on, once in a lifetime experiences for hundreds of children, teens and adults throughout the Lakes Region.

90% of what we do is about education • 100% of what we do is about our lakes • Over 200 volunteers help with our programs…

We don’t sit in boats, we SAIL the boats.

We don’t watch the lake, we SHOW you the lake.
We don’t walk down memory lane, we MAKE memory lane.
We don’t relax at the docks, we RACE from the docks.
We don’t buy boats, we BUILD boats.
