February 24 – Ask the Experts

It's the middle of winter and your boat is safely tucked away. But your mind is already racing with plans for those spring commissioning projects. We've set up a group of experts on every phase of boat maintenance - sails, rigging, electrical, plumbing, engines, paint, etc. to get you started on the right path. So come with your questions, and enjoy free refreshments from Cisco Brewers. Admission is free for Museum members, $5 for all others.
