Adopt-a-Boat at North House
This summer, North House Folk School launches a new wooden boat adoption program specifically designed for local summer residents.
The school is looking for water-loving folks who want to lavish some TLC on a small wooden boat this spring, summer and fall. The reward? Countless placid evenings, halcyon mornings, and the occasional calm afternoon spent rowing around the Grand Marais harbor during the fleeting summer months. Consider this a summer fling; your commitment doesn't extend past the first snowflakes of fall. You'll be left with only sweet harbor memories of your boat, and none of the winter boat blues.
Boat Friends (BFs) agree to do some maintenance on a wooden boat in the spring and fall, and in return, are welcome to use the boat in the harbor throughout the summer (in accordance with water safety practices).
Call 387-9762 for more information, or stop by North House to fill out an application.
