									                          SILENT AUCTION BOATS

1.   Mill Creek 13’ kayak I Stitch ‘n glue construction; a stunning look with
     sage green hull, varnished okoume deck, matched iroko coamings. Designer’s
     comments: “Combining the stability and comfortable seating of a canoe with
     the light weight and decked-in security of a kayak, the Mill Creek 13 is perfect
     for photography, fly fishing, birding, or just relaxed paddling. The Mill Creek
     13 is surprisingly fast thanks to her efficient 5-panel multi-chine hull and
     feather-light 40lb weight. The cockpit is 54" long, so entry and egress are
     easy for everyone. “

2.   Mill Creek 13’ kayak II        Stitch ‘n glue construction; a stunning look with
     tan hull, varnished okoume deck, mahogany coamings. Designer’s comments:

3.   Rotomolded (plastic) 7’ kayak          A small, light-weight, yellow hull,
     easily paddled by beginners. This is a great first kayak for local rivers. Easy
     to store; no maintenance.

4.   Aluminum 17’ Grumman canoe A great touring canoe, seats three with
     room for gear. Very low maintenance, tough aluminum hull, this makes a
     great camping canoe.

5.   “Sweat Dream” 13’ solo canoe           Very pretty, stitch ’n glue construction,
     an ultra-lightweight canoe for one. Easily paddled, this solo canoe pleases
     both beginner and experienced paddlers.

6.   Square stern 13’ aluminum canoe            A two-seater originally
     manufactured as a double-ender by Lincoln Fiberglass (yet it’s an aluminum
     canoe!), this boat was given a square stern by the students to accommodate
     a small trolling motor.

7.   Old wood/canvass 17’ canoe            A classic beauty, with wide canoe frames,
     thin planking, canvass covered. Not quite ready for the water, it’s definitely a
     project for someone who loves this style, or it might be time to retire this
     classic as a nice piece of art hanging in a loft or tavern.

8.   Sport Craft 16’ fiberglass canoe       Fiberglass hull, aluminum rails, brand
     new oak thwarts and seats. This is a great canoe for two people that want to
     do some weekend paddling or fishing.


                       MORE BOATS TO COME!!
                       Other marine stuff below
          HiFly 320 FX This windsurfer would be great for someone that
           wants to go windsurfing without investing a lot of money. Our area
           has many great locations for this sport.

          Half Models        Back in the day of traditional boatbuilding, creating a
           half model was an integral part of the design and building process.
           While computers have largely replaced half models within that context,
           there are still good reasons to build a half model in 2010. Modern half
           models maintain validity as educational tools, additional 3-D check of
           lines, and as pieces of art. Whatever the reason for building a half
           model, doing so honors a tradition dating back to the very first boat
           builders. These traditions seem particularly strong in New England,
           where ship building innovation and quality set world wide standards.
           Old New England half models can be found throughout this maritime
           region in antique shops, restaurants, museums, etc. By creating a half
           model, regardless of the reasons, the builder connects to the centuries
           of New England maritime tradition.
           Chariho Marine students have fashioned several half models that
           would enhance any New England décor. Our half models are mounted
           on backboards, with many options and sizes to choose from.

          Periodicals Hundreds of back issues of WOODENBOAT Magazine.

          Paddles Half dozen refurbished paddles, short, medium, and long.
           Perfect for that canoe (see above!).

          Oars Half a dozen pairs of oars. We left them just as is because they
           look so cool. Great to use or add a neat salty look to your deck or
           home.

 Proceeds from this event will enable students to build and compete
with a St. Ayles Skiff. For more information on this exciting venture,
