Welcome to another Wooden Boat Wednesday!
This week, we turn the clock back to 1976 with a New York Times feature that profiled shore boatbuilder Dave Beaton and the quirks and culture of his locally-famous boatyard, still in operation today.

The full text is available to the public; subscribers to the New York Times can see the original digitized newsprint pages.
