The Best Boats You Can Build

August 9, 2020 Update:
Chesapeake Light Craft and COVID-19
Showroom is closed: Curbside pickup in effect.

    • CLC remains operational, while every possible precaution is being observed. We are taking calls, answering tech questions, and shipping kits and supplies.

    • We are experiencing high demand. Please note that SHIPPING TIMES HAVE INCREASED for CLC kits and supplies. 

    • Some of our suppliers are enduring staffing and supply chain challenges, contributing to delays. Trailers, boat covers, and small boat sails (all of which are made in the USA) are pushing 4-6 weeks.

    • Our inventory is generally healthy. However, epoxy pumps, gloves, and respirators are out of stock due to demand from the healthcare industry. (Epoxy pumps have been requisitioned for hand sanitizer bottles; the other two for obvious reasons.)

    • Our showroom remains closed. Curbside pickup is working smoothly, however. If you need to pick up supplies here in Annapolis, please email or call in your order in advance. We'll bring your order out to your car! This will limit everyone's exposure.

    • Both the showroom AND PHONES will be closed on SATURDAYS. We look forward to returning to normal hours and reopening the showroom as soon as possible! 
    • Boatbuilding classes at CLC are cancelled through Fall 2020. Please contact us if you have questions about your class!

    • We're a small business. Thank you for your patience, and for your patronage! Our staff and their families depend on it.
