Join us this November for the 8th annual Women’s Shipbuilding Day. Virginia was launched in June 2022 but is still under construction at her wharf on the Kennebec River.

Shipwright Rob Stevesn will present an overview and tour of Virginia before participants begin hands-on shipbuilding activies.

There is no charge, and no knowledge or experience is required. We supply all tools.

On a rainy October day, about 25 women came to help make sweeps (oars) for Virginia. The day started outside, but the work was moved inside due to the rain.
