Rowing, Sailing, Building
The Heritage-23 (H-23) is available and the Penobscot-14 (P-14) will soon be available to row. They will be located in slip 102 at the East Tawas State dock and are available for rowers from 5am to 7pm, six days a week. (Wednesday is maintenance day). The H-23 requires a crew of 5 and the P-14 can accommodate a crew of 1, 2 or 3. Membership is easy and inexpensive, but is required for insurance purposes.
The Heritage-23 (H-23) is available and the Penobscot-14 (P-14) will soon be available to sail. We have a limited sailing program in 2013, but plan to focus on Sailing in 2014. The 2013 Sailing Program is for experienced sailors because we currently do not have the capability to provide classes. Classes will be available in 2014. Again, membership is easy and inexpensive, but required for insurance purposes.
There are three building programs for 2013: completing the P-14, Summer Oar, Mast, Boom, Yard, and Gaff program; and Building a Heritage 23 starting in September.
- P-14 Completion:
will be finished by mid-June and the boat put in service as a rowing boat.
- Summer Oars and Spars:
Build the mast, boom and gaff for the Penobscot 14 (kit)
Make two masts, 2 yards and 2 booms for the H-23 to be built in the winter
Make oars (5) for the H-23 to be built in the winter
- Winter Build Program: Build a Heritage 23
All of the material is here and we are ready to start when September rolls around. We have another H-23 to build when the September boat is done.
Membership is easy and for builders, very inexpensive, but required for insurance purposes. Builders are the source of the boats that the program uses.
