Our next presentation will take place on January 14th at 7:00 PM.

Bill Womack, owner of the Beetle Boat Shop, will be talking about the history and construction of the Beetle Cat sailboat, along with the other traditional wood boats built at the shop in Wareham, MA.

Suggested donation is $5 at the door. The talk will be 45 minutes to an hour with time for questions at the end.

From the Beetle Boat Shop:

The Beetle Cat (1921-2014) boat is a 12 foot, gaff rigged, wooden sailboat first built in 1921 by the Beetle family of New Bedford, Massachusetts. Beetle, Inc., now located in Wareham, Massachusetts, is now the sole builder of Beetle Cat boats.

The Beetle Boat Shop is dedicated to preserving the art of traditional Plank-On-Frame wood boat construction using the highest quality of materials and craftsmanship. While building and maintaining the Beetle Cat is our main focus here at the Beetle Boat Shop, we are also reaching out to design, build, restore and maintain larger wood boats of all kinds.
