Giving a Boost to the Boat Show & Our Next 10 Years!


Your gift will directly support our mission — "To help the world of classic and wooden boats thrive and grow for generations to come" — as we work to:

  • Create gathering places that connect the entire world of classic boats and support events that do the same
  • Provide instruction and inspiration for enthusiasts, students and those who work in the trade
  • Bring people (up-close via video) aboard the best classic boats and into the workshops of the top masters
  • Help us all learn to live by L.F. Herreshoff's motto: "Simplicity Afloat Is the Surest Guarantee of Happiness"
We are committed to keeping the annual membership fee to Off Center Harbor reasonable so that anyone can afford it. We plan to do the same for the Worldwide Classic Boat Show. And we refuse to accept lucrative advertising dollars so that you can be absolutely certain that you are getting 100% honest information directly from leaders at the top of this field.

Your generous added support, although not tax-deductible, will help greatly in achieving our mission.

You can contribute by credit or debit card using the adjacent form. Or, you can mail a check directly to Off Center Harbor, P.O. Box 10, Brooklin, ME 04616 (please include your email address on your check so we can be sure to thank you).

Thanks for running the show again! I had less time to watch this year as we're no longer in lockdown, but it's great to see these boats from across the world and hear your inspiring speakers. Well done, and I'll be renewing my OCH membership too.

Oh my OCH, the work and attention to detail you have all put into this presentation is... beyond my imagination! Wouldn't our dearly departed George Moffett have loved this? Every link I click on, every guest on your fabulous guest map, every detail that takes my breath away, I thank you, thank you, thank you.

John Stevenson

Thanks for extending the show. That's great news! It's really awesome — I love it! My only suggestion is to rotate more (many, many more) boats through the home page. I check that every single day, and wish there were different boats — it's the easiest way for me to see other boats without searching long and hard. I really rely on the photo rotator to be introduced to new craft! Thank you guys, keep up the great work.

Steve, Maynard, Eric, et al, Your videos are always so inspirational and perfectly rendered. Thanks for opening the world of wooden boating to all of us! I especially love all of the how-to series and interviews.

The past 50 years of the wooden boat revival have been one of the most interesting developments of my lifetime. Your leadership in the video arena has inspired many of us and set the bar for the field as others have entered the marketplace. When I signed up for a lifetime membership 10 years ago I had no idea how far you would go or how richly developed and expert your offerings would become. What a fabulous ride it’s been in all your endeavors… and what the future holds will be fascinating. Many thanks!

Roger Stobbart
