DLBA recently completed a design of a 16-foot rowing/sailing skiff for the Tidewater Wooden Boat Workshop. Tidewater Wooden Boat Workshop is a nonprofit organization that uses wooden boatbuilding and other nautical-related activities to help at-risk youth develop the life skills that lead to a successful future. Progress on the skiff is progressing nicely, and the boat is to be dedicated during the TWBW open house on Sunday, May 7, at their facility in Norfolk
