  • Both the showroom and phones remain closed on Saturdays. We look forward to resuming Saturday hours soon. 

  • Masks and Social Distancing are STILL REQUIRED in our showroom and classroom areas. 

  • Boatbuilding classes at CLC have resumedOur partners at the WoodenBoat School are accepting registrations for classes in 2021 and they are filling up fast. Some class sizes have been reduced, so sign up soon! Please contact us if you have questions about classes. Safety precautions will apply in all classes, including masks. We continue to sanitize common areas daily. An outdoor lunch area is available for our students. 

  • We are experiencing high demand. Please note that SHIPPING TIMES HAVE INCREASED BY SEVERAL WEEKS for some CLC kits. Most supplies and accessories are shipped very quickly. Call or email us for current availability. 
  • Some of our suppliers continue to see supply-chain delays. Trailers, boat covers, and small boat sails (all of which are made in the USA) are pushing 4-6 weeks. Longer for trailers, for which there is a worldwide backlog.    
  • We are experiencing some shipping delays due to unusually high demand for online orders, COVID-19 spread, and vaccine shipping efforts. Our shipping partners are working with us to expedite all the shipments as fast as they can.
  • CLC's in-stock inventory is healthy. Respirators are back in stock, too! 
  • We're a small business. Thank you for your patience, and for your patronage! Our staff and their families depend on it.
