Founded in 1967, CABBS brings together people who share a passion for building, sailing, paddling, and motoring in boats.  Visitors are always welcome at any CABBS activity.    Some CABBS members have build boats – but not all.   Some have restored boats. Some simply have a boat they want to enjoy more.

Join at a meeting or submitting the membership-registration-2023.  Annual dues are $35.
