Preservation and restoration mean saving one boat at a time. Hopefully, a boat with historic significance can be preserved with its original uniqueness.  If not that, then restored to be cherished and enjoyed into the future.

Ancient techniques now are blended with new tools, materials, and products for the restoration process. There will always be more to learn and information to share.
