LINCOLNVILLE — Josh Gerritsen will give a free presentation on building a rowboat on Wednesday, October 2, at 7 p.m., at the Lincolnville Community Library.
Gerritsen will describe how he built his own sliding seat rowboat from a kit even though he had no prior boatbuilding experience. The boat was an Oxford wherry, and he’ll explain why he chose that design and what inspired him to do the project.
He’ll also tell about his recent experience racing the rowboat in the Blackburn Challenge: a 20-mile open ocean race in Gloucester, Massachusetts.
Gerritsen is a professional filmmaker and photographer based in Lincolnville. He has served on the Lincolnville Board of Selectmen since 2017.
The library is at 208 Main Street in Lincolnville Center.
