The Center for Wooden Boats began in 1968 when Dick and Colleen Wagner started renting their collection of wooden boats from their floating home. Because of their huge success with their rental operation, the Wagners started a "living museum." They believed that the best way to learn is from hands-on experience and the Center for Wooden Boats an interactive museum where visitors learn about maritime heritage and building and maintaining small boats.
