CBMM_BoatAuction1_Sept2_2017

CBMM’s 20th annual Charity Boat Auction is Saturday, September 2

CBMM_BoatAuction1_Sept2_2017 CBMM_BoatAuction2_Sept2_2017 CBMM_BoatAuction3_Sept2_2017(ST MICHAELS, MD – July 3, 2017) The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum offers the opportunity to get a great deal on the boat of your dreams this Labor Day weekend during the 20th annual Charity Boat Auction on Saturday, September 2. More than 100 boats—ranging in size and performance from sailing dinghies to cabin cruisers, and everything in between—will be in the water and on land to be auctioned off to the highest bidders.

Advanced, absentee bids will be accepted, and can be called in with payment information at 410-745-4942 or taken in person until noon on Friday, September 1, 2017. As an absolute auction, all boats will be sold the day of the event, with a title office set up at CBMM for ease of transfer. All boats must be removed by Monday, September 4.

Proceeds from the rain or shine event benefit the children and adults served by CBMM’s education, restoration, and exhibition programming.

Auction boats will be available for preview on Thursday, August 31 and Friday, September 1 from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. each day, with a $5 non-member admission. Guests can also preview the boats beginning at 8:00 a.m. the day of the event, with the live auction beginning at 11:00 a.m. along CBMM’s Miles River waterfront campus. Food and beverages will be available for purchase at 10:00 a.m., and beer beginning at 10:30 a.m.

CBMM’s Charity Boat Donation Program Director Todd Taylor takes donations and resells boats throughout the year, holding aside some of the inventory for the annual auction. Taylor travels the east coast working with boat owners, yacht brokers, marinas, boatyards, and other donors and potential buyers wanting to support CBMM through boat donations and sales. In preparation for the annual auction, boat sales will be suspended on Sunday, July, 30, 2017.

“100% of the revenue generated by the auction goes directly toward helping CBMM’s educational programs and restoring and preserving its historic structures and boats,” says Taylor. “Let us take an unused or unwanted boat off your hands, and you can receive a nice tax deduction. Each donated boat helps the museum do great things for the people we serve.”

The event also includes a flea market-style tag sale from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. where guests can purchase a variety of used boating gear, including ground tackle, electrical equipment, hardware, rope and chain, oars, life jackets, fishing tackle, motors, and more.

Auction boats and the official rules can be viewed at cbmm.org/boatauction, with inventory updated weekly. Boat sales are on-going through July 30, 2017, with all auction boats subject to sale prior to the auction.

To donate a boat or items for the tag sale, or for updates on the boat auction and inventory, visit cbmm.org/boatauction, call 410-745-4942, or kwalpole@cbmm.org.

On September 2, CBMM’s Fogg’s Landing gates open at 8:00 a.m., with free event entrance for CBMM members and children ages 5 and under. Otherwise, general admission is $5 per person until 11:00 a.m., with a $5 paddle fee for registered bidders. After 11:00 a.m., regular two-day admission rates apply, with more at cbmm.org/boatauction.

CBMM_MillsLad_2017

Lad Mills retires from CBMM

CBMM_MillsLad_2017(ST MICHAELS, MD – June 5, 2017) Lad Mills of Easton, Md. recently retired as Charity Boat Donation Director from his nearly 16 years of service to the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in St. Michaels, Md.

During his tenure, Mills traveled up and down the east coast, working with boat owners, yacht brokers, marinas, boatyards, and other donors and potential buyers, to support CBMM through boat donations and sales. Now leading the program is Todd Taylor, who joined CBMM in January 2015.

“Lad’s efforts and dedication helped build the largest and most reputable charity boat donation operation in the nation, and I’ve sincerely enjoyed my time working with him and learned a tremendous amount,” commented Taylor. “Although Lad will be focusing on his R&R with his family, we’ll continue to run CBMM’s Charity Boat Donation Program as one of the finest around.”

Mills started at CBMM in September 2001, working with CBMM’s John Ford to build its budding charity boat donation program and special events operations.

“We soon learned Lad was excellent at selling boats,” commented Ford at a recent reception honoring Mills. “It didn’t take long for the program to really take off.”

Shortly thereafter, Mills focused his work on the Charity Boat Donation Program, growing it from a few donations and sales a year, to hundreds of transactions and an annual Charity Boat Auction held each Labor Day weekend along CBMM’s waterfront.

“I sold my first boat for $50 to a young couple on their 35-foot sailboat who were sailing around the world,” recalls Mills. “Their dinghy was recently destroyed in a storm, and they didn’t have a lot of money. I got really excited about helping this young couple out, while helping a donor get rid of a boat, and handing over their check to the accounting office. It’s really a win-win-win situation, and has been a whole lot of fun.”

Mills says the most rewarding aspects of his career have been those win-win-win situations—as he describes them—and looks forward to seeing CBMM continue to grow, and increase its impact on to the communities served.

“It’s a phenomenal place,” said Mills. “My wife Tina and I visit a lot of maritime museums, and what CBMM is doing in the boatyard, collections, and programming is just off the charts.”

In his retirement, Mills is immediately working on getting his Lyman motorboat back on the Miles River, with trips already taken and future travel plans made for South Bristol, Maine.

“Because of Lad’s work, hundreds of thousands of dollars have been raised in support of our education, restoration, and exhibition programming,” commented CBMM President Kristen Greenaway. “CBMM would not be the world-class institution it is without the dedicated work of people like Lad, for which we are very grateful.”

CBMM’s Charity Boat Donation Program accepts and sells all manner of craft year-round, and offers long-standing boat sales and lease/charter operations, with 100% of the proceeds supporting the children and adults served by its education, curatorial, and boatbuilding programs. This year’s Charity Boat Auction is set for Saturday, September 2, with more about CBMM’s Charity Boat Donation Program at bit.ly/buyaboat.

Joshua Mills hired as Charity Boat Donation Program Associate

CBMM_MillsJoshua(ST MICHAELS, MD – February 24, 2017) Joshua Mills of Wayne, W.Va., has been hired to join the Charity Boat Donation Program at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in St. Michaels, Md., as an Associate. CBMM’s Charity Boat Donation Program accepts and sells all manner of craft year-round to support the non-profit’s education, curatorial, and boatbuilding programs. Mills is returning to CBMM in this full-time position after working this past summer in a seasonal position with the charity boat donation and sales program.

“This is a special place full of good, friendly people who make home feel not so far away,” said Mills. “I’m really looking forward to working full-time at CBMM and am so thankful for the kindness everyone here has shown me.”

Mills brings a wide range of experience, having worked at a state park in West Virginia and Keeneland Thoroughbred Horse Race Track in Lexington, Ky., and as an archaeologist for the Kentucky Archaeological Survey and Cultural Resource Analysts and substitute school teacher in West Virginia.

He holds a bachelor’s degree in anthropology, and minor in Spanish, from the University of Kentucky, and a graduate certificate in Appalachian studies and a master’s degree in humanities from Marshall University.

Mills’ volunteer experience includes time spent as a summer camp counselor for his local police department in West Virginia; work with school groups, scout groups, and the interested public at archaeology sites in West Virginia and Kentucky; and help with his hometown church’s various projects and events.

A current resident of Claiborne, Md., Mills had spent little time on the Chesapeake Bay before joining CBMM, but plenty with sailing. He built a small sailboat with his grandfather and sailed on small lakes in West Virginia and Kentucky; joined the only sailing club in West Virginia, the Sewell Mountain Sailing Association; and in 2015, was invited to go on a sailing trip from Virginia to Annapolis and back.

“That was my first experience with the Bay and I was amazed at its wildlife, geography, and natural beauty,” Mills said. “I knew this was a place that one day I may want to live.”

Throughout the year, CBMM’s Charity Boat Donation Program Director Lad Mills and Program Manager Todd Taylor travel up and down the east coast working with boat owners, yacht brokers, marinas, boatyards, and other donors and potential buyers, working to support CBMM through boat donations and sales. CBMM’s current list of donated boats for sale is at bit.ly/buyaboat.

“One hundred percent of the revenue generated by each donated boat sale goes directly toward helping CBMM’s educational programs and restoring and preserving its historic structures and boats,” said Taylor. “We sell donated boats all year long, with each sale helping CBMM do great things for the people we serve. We’re glad to have Josh with us full time, as it helps to strengthen our program and the mission-related work CBMM works to achieve.”

Established in 1965, the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum is a world-class maritime museum dedicated to preserving and exploring the history, environment, and people of the entire Chesapeake Bay, with the values of relevancy, authenticity, and stewardship guiding its mission. Serving more than 77,000 guests each year, CBMM’s campus includes a floating fleet of historic boats and 12 exhibition buildings, situated in a park-like, waterfront setting along the Miles River and St. Michaels harbor. Charitable gifts to CBMM’s annual fund enable CBMM to educate and inspire the next generation of Chesapeake Bay stewards, and can be made online at cbmm.org/donate.

Draketail construction continues at CBMM

cbmm_boatshopreport_doc(ST MICHAELS, MD – November 14, 2016) Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum Boatyard Program Manager Jenn Kuhn reports work continues on the 25’ draketail Pintail, with an anticipated spring 2017 launch.

Construction began mid-January 2016 through CBMM’s Apprentice for a Day public boatbuilding program. Pintail’s hull has been completed with the deck beams and the floors cbmm_boatshopreport_jenninstalled. She will be fitted with an area in her forepeak for storing miscellaneous gear, and participants have decided there will be no cuddy cabin due to the narrowness of her beam.

Some of the work to be completed throughout the winter includes building the engine box, the floorboards, installing the rudder, the stuffing box, the decks and coaming, the steering gear, the gunwales and spray rails, the duck walk—the area along the waterline around her round cbmm_boatshopreport_pintailstern—and building the forward and aft seating areas. Her Yanmar two-cylinder diesel engine will be installed, she will be painted white with a red bottom, and her coaming and gunwales will be left bright.

CBMM is planning to sell Pintail upon completion.For more information, contact Jenn Kuhn at 410-745-4980 or jkuhn@cbmm.org. See more photos of the project at bit.ly/CBMMPintail.
