Reviews for WoodenBoat School
Beautiful wooden fleet, 2015-09-07
Captain: , Shelter Island, NY (114)

Just completed a week long class sailing open boats from this harbor. Great staff, views, and of course, beautiful wooden boats. Peapods to large schooners.



Interesting Place to visit, 2014-08-12
Captain: , Longmeadow, MA (70)

We picked up a "Guest" mooring at the school ($15/night). We got to peek into some of the classes and actually got to meet one of the instructors who was teaching a class on building a kayak. Everyone was friendly and the grounds are cool to wander around. No real facilities but the vistas are awesome.



Interesting and Educational, 2013-09-12
Captain: , St. Augustine, FL (4015)

We stopped mid day and picedk up one of the WBS Visitor moorings. Happened to arrive at the lunch break for students. One of the students, who described the Wooden Boat School as "Summer Camp for old guys," took us on a tour of the shops and explained the different shops and programs. The store has extensive information on wooden boats and some interesting gift items. The staff in the store was most helpful and informative, tanking extensive time to talk to us. Since there was a SW wind increasing and blowing into the harbor, we moved to a more protected anchorage for the night.



What a Show, 2012-10-01
Captain: , Annapolis (451)

We were there for several days this Summer, which encompassed the Wooden Boat Regatta. Approximately 120 boats from 30-100+ft in the harbor, later racing down the reach.
Facilities at the school, we took a mooring, were good. No showers, a looooong walk into Brooklin for minimal provisioning opportunities, but a beautiful library.



Very Interesting, 2012-09-27
Captain: , Annapolis (264)

Moorings are marked "WBS-Guest' and are $15 per night. We just took one and paid at the dock. There was plenty of room to anchor outside the mooring field. You can't visit the school while classes are being held but you can view from the doorways. Neat stuff in the store. You can dinghy across the Babson Island where there is a wide beach and trails.



Worthwhile stop for any woodworker, 2012-08-16
Captain: , Pasadena, MD (1496)

There is plenty of room to anchor outside the mooring field, and there are 4 or 5 WoodenBoat School guest moorings that are marked "WBS Guest." Moorings are $15/night in summer, 2012. The anchorage is exposed to the South and Southwest. There is no launch service, so you must have your own dinghy. The faciity and grounds are open to the public (except classes in session), and very interesting. Some hand made small craft were available for sale at what seemed to be very reasonable prices. Verizon wireless is not available; minimal service was avaiable in roaming mode.



Great place to visit, 2007-01-27
Captain: , Camden, Maine (741)

WoodenBoat School (and WoodenBoat Publications) is not a marina, but does have a beautiful waterfront facility that cruisers are welcome to visit. The anchorage is excellent, except when the wind goes SE, and there are a few transient moorings. You can wander around the old estate, check out boat building classes in the former barns, and/or the WoodenBoat Store. You can also dinghy SW to Little Babson Island, a public access gem. Don't worry if your boat is made of something besides trees; these folks like all sorts of boats. [Full disclosure: I worked here for years.]
