While Patriots’ Day is an historical day, Patriots Day 2012 is more than another day for the Boston Marathon. On Chewonki Neck three local kids started to make the first boat for Chewonki Camp for Girls. The boat is a 15 foot wood canvas canoe. The canoe, once finished, will become part of a wood canvas canoe fleet for Chewonki Camp for Girls on 4th Debsconeag Lake. To build a boat, you first bend the ribs.
