  • Maritime Day & Blessing of the Fleet

    June 1  10am - 4pm

    Maritime Day is a new event at CBMM to help celebrate both the start of its construction of a new Maryland Dove and, more generally, the traditions kept alive in its working Shipyard.

    CBMM’s shipwrights and apprentices are a tangible connection to the Chesapeake’s rich story of boatbuilding, and this June 1 event invites the public to be a part of it. Shipwrights will give demonstrations of various maritime skills throughout the day, including steam bending mast hoops, shaping a dugout canoe, blacksmithing, and splicing. All demonstrations will be held in and around the boatshop, and members of CBMM’s floating fleet of historic vessels will be dockside.
