​About us

​​Wooden Boat Builders!


The BBMC builds wooden boats!  We build more boats, better quality boats, involve more members of the community in the building process and teach more community members about building wooden boats than any other social sector organization in the Southeast!    This is very significant to Wakulla County as wooden boat building is a central part of the heritage of our maritime community. We are growing this objective with our "SEND A KID TO CAMP" fundraising efforts.  Please visit the BBMC,

 attend our events and support our programs.  Thanks!
