MG Makers: Stand Up Paddleboard Workshop

First seen in Hawaii, SUP boards have exploded in popularity. There are no other SUP boards in the world that are easier for a first-time boatbuilder. Friend of Maritime Gloucester, Dick Zimmermann, leads this build-your-own 5-week workshop using the Chesapeake Light Craft's kit for the 12'6" stand up board.  

Starting from a computer-cut Chesapeake Light Craft kit, you’ll build your wooden Kaholo stitch-and-glue style. plywood panels are joined to form the board’s shape, and the interior reinforced with a grid of aircraft-like frames for stiffness and light weight. Epoxy and fiberglass add strength and durability. This workshop is a perfect partner project. Workshop takes place in Maritime Gloucester's Boat House.

Ice Age Trail Hike

This moraine boulder at Ravenswood was depostied by a retreating ice sheet.

Forces of nature formed Ravenswood’s landscape. Thousands of years ago ice chunks from melting glaciers created kettle ponds, bogs, and swamps. As a matter of fact, most of New England was buried under an enormous ice sheet that was more than a mile thick!
