Model Boat Building Demonstration with Keith Richards
November 16 @ 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Keith Richards has been building model boats for almost forty years, and is currently working on his first fishing boat model. This model is a mid-1940s, wooden hull Eastern Rig dragger built in Thomaston, Maine named Priscilla V. On the afternoon of November 16th, Richards will be at the Fishing Heritage Center to work on and talk about this new model. Learn about fishing vessels and gear and how they’ve changed over time! This program accompanies the Center’s latest exhibit, F/V Innovation, which explores the evolution of vessels and gear and pays tribute to some of the individuals whose innovations propelled the industry into the modern era.
