Join Tony Davis, boat builder, sailing instructor, and owner of Arey's Pond Boat Yard, for an inside look at the four-year restoration of Conjurer, a 1909 H. Manley Crosby Catboat.The program will be held at 7 PM on Tuesday July 26, at the Salt Pond Visitor Center in Eastham.

Arey's Pond Cats are descended from traditional wooden catboats originally launched on Narragansett Bay two hundred years ago. True natives of Cape Cod, catboats have been sailed, worked hard, and have been well-loved by fishermen and recreational sailors alike ever since the first one headed up into the wind and someone exclaimed, "She comes about quick as a cat!"

This program is part of the annual "Tuesday Nights at Salt Pond" series. Held weekly at 7 PM in the summer in the air-cooled comfort of the visitor center auditorium, programs focus on the diverse natural and cultural resources on the Outer Cape and are suitable for all ages. Programs are free of charge and accessible. The series is sponsored by Friends of the Cape Cod National Seashore.
