My husband is building a kayak here - one week course. Teacher is extremely helpful & knowledgeable. Lots of time on your feet - first day was 8 - 6:30 - but enjoyable & well worth it.

Yes it was exponentially better experience than Starbucks....and lasts longer. I looked for years at plans, read books, and dreamed about building a boat. I am woodworking capable and wood carve a lot, but face it that is not building something you plunk in the water everyday and expect to stay a float. To my surprise the wife bought me... More

I didn't intend on buying a boat kit, but after visiting CLC, I did. The staff is very knowledgeable . And they have everything needed to build a small boat.

Fantastic little place! I needed some specialty materials (actually for a non-boat project) and this was the only place locally(ish) to get it. The people here are phenomenal. They are friendly, helpful and extremely knowledgeable. This place has more of a feeling of a club house than a store. People come and bring their boats, chat and get tips. They... More

Stopped by to look at their boat and kayak kits. They were so nice and helpful. If you are at all handy and interested in building your own boat or kayak this is the place to go.

Great weekend on the water testing CLC boats. The event was well organized, well attended and informative. People were friendly, helpful and patient as we took turns testing kayaks, sailboats and row boats. A great event for sampling CLC boat designs.

Thank JTrunner
