Our “From Shore to Shore” exhibit, focusing on boat builders and boatyards of Long Island, will be on display at the Sayville Library starting January 2021. The exhibit features boat builders, both professional and amateur, dedicated to preserving the craft of earlier generations. Some of the featured boat builders include Howard Pickerell, Paul Ketcham, the Scopinich family, Alan Steiger, Donn Costanzo, the Bayles Boat Shop workers, and the Harter brothers. Boatyards include Davison’s Boatyard, the Hanff Boatyard and Knutson’s Boatyard. On January 12, 2021, at 7 pm, Nancy Solomon, director of Long Island Traditions and curator of the exhibit, will give a Zoom-based presentation on the research and creation of the exhibit, and the current situation of some of the boatyards and boat builders who are featured. The presentation will include historic photographs and video. The program is free via the Sayville Library, but online registration is required. Registration will be open from December 1, 2020 to January 11, 2021. Register here.
