Volunteering in this department is ideal for those of you who like to "mess around in boats." The focus is on the maintenance and restoration of the park's collection of 100 historic watercraft.

Learn traditional boat building and repair techniques, including how to use hand and power tools.

Work on boats in the Small Boat Shop, on floating vessels at Hyde Street Pier, and at off-site special events.
