Rock Hall Marine Restoration and Heritage Center (RHMRHC) is proud to announce its new project and fundraising raffle. The crew and volunteers at RHMRHC will be constructing a 20' pine Bateau with highly respected Rock Hall boat builder Harry White. Raffle tickets will be sold at $20 to win this Bateau.
The kick-off for the project will be at RHMRHC May 6, 2017 Open House. Join us to meet and talk with Harry and watch the Bateau under construction.
Harry White built many wooden and cold-molded work boats from Bateaus to larger Chesapeake Deadrises in the 40 to 50 foot range from his shop on Biscuit Hill in Rock Hall. A good number of his crafts are still working or used as pleasure boats.
Below is an interview with Harry at our November 2015 Open House when he came out to give us a hand shucking oysters and talking Rock Hall boats.
