Roger Crawford, Sailor and Boat Builder
Local boat builder extraordinaire Roger Crawford shares his love for the North and South Rivers and the artistry of boat building. Roger has built over 500 of his “Melonseed Skiff” sailboats, and a variety of other traditional small craft totaling nearly 800 boats since 1976. Roger will explain the romantic story of how as he built each individual boat, a community of kindred spirits developed a bond, cemented by the purity of the science of sailing and appreciation of craftsmanship.
