The 2012 Quiet Water symposium is March 3rd at the MSU Pavillion.
Our own Richard Lincoln will be part of the Boat Build and Restoration Team and will be giving a presentation on Stitch and Glue boat building, better known as Taped Seam Construction. Here are some photos from a past year’s exhibit at the QWS when Richard shared a booth with Boat Builder Tim Fox of C Fox Wood Boats in Kent City, Michigan whom he apprenticed with for several years.
Here is a link with more information about the speakers and presentations.
