"For over four decades, CWB has been a beacon of maritime heritage preservation in the heart of the Pacific Northwest. As a living museum, we bring a diverse community together to experience the joys of sailing, boatbuilding, and small craft. The Center for Wooden Boats promotes northwest maritime heritage through education, interpretation and hands-on experience in building, maintaining and using historic small craft. The Center for Wooden Boats is a thriving community that creates equitable access to empowering maritime experiences." (from the business)
