The Center for Wooden Boats (CWB) is a museum dedicated to preserving and documenting the maritime history of the Pacific Northwest area of the United States. CWB was founded by Dick Wagner in Seattle in the 1970s and has grown to include three sites; the South Lake Union campus, The Northlake Workshop & Warehouse at the North end of Lake Union, and The Center for Wooden Boats at Cama Beach State Park on Camano Island.

Collection[edit]

The CWB collection includes over 170 vessels, mostly small sailboats and rowboats.[1] The boats are divided into a number of sections. The livery fleet includes day sailers, rowboats, and two pedal boats.[citation needed]

The 20-foot (6.1 m) Blanchard Junior Knockabout is the mainstay of the CWB's rental fleet. These boats were designed and built at the Blanchard Boat Company on Lake Union. They have six, which are used for teaching and rentals.[2]
