We have recently purchased a full size bus, which is being transformed into a portable classroom. Onboard the Traveler we will be rolling into schools and giving our special programs to those who for one reason or another cannot join us out on the Martha Lewis.
We will keep you posted on our progress and let you know when we are rolling out!
Ruby is a log canoe built in 1890, she is 31 feet tip to tip with one sail. Ruby was donated to us in late October. She is currently behind the lightkeepers house just across form the Maritime Museum. We will be working the the Maritime Museum to keep Ruby maintained.
Ruby was build near Poquoson, Virginia by Charles F. Smith and is a fine example of a Chesapeake Bay workboat. Stay in touch for more information on this beautiful vessel.
