The Hudson River Maritime Museum is excited to announce that Emily Chichon, of our Riverport Wooden Boat School, is featured in an article in the July issue of Chronogram! Emily is an original member of HRMM's team of shipwrights and a competitor in the Hudson River National Boat Building Challenge on Hudson River Day.
Emily has extensive boatbuilding experience, having worked on some very impressive and iconic vessels: the Hudson River sloop Clearwater, the Beacon Sloop Club’s beloved Woody Guthrie and the Commander, the oldest surviving wooden boat to have served in World War I as a balloon-spotter.
The July issue of Chronogram is on newsstands now, or you can read the article online.
