We hope you have been enjoying our many strange questions on Facebook. Soon the answers will be coming and they'll be on Twitter too.


I think this question may have stumped you die-hard boaters and historians though!


Mailchimp is the new emailing program we are using to keep your inquiring minds updated on our events and news... straight to your own Inbox! 

We hope this will be a way to keep our printing and postage costs down while still staying in contact.


If you are not already on our email list, please fill out the form below and you will be added right away. You will also be able to unsubscribe if you are hearing from us too much. But I cannot imagine that would be the case!

Thanks, Amy
