The Metal Boat Society (MBS) is an educational society whose mission is to share information about metal boats and boating. The MBS was established 30 years ago by a handful of metal boat enthusiasts in the Puget Sound area. The society is operated entirely by unpaid member volunteers. Society members range from hobbyists to professionals in the maritime industry. Member expertise ranges from design to construction to maintenance-repair to cruising to surveying to restoration of metal boats. Member experience may be shared through our Facebook page and metal boat festivals in Anacortes, WA. Membership dues support this website and metal boat festivals. MBS supplies a range of information for all metal boat enthusiasts including:
The MBS has a Facebook page with over 500 international members. Information is shared on metal boats, building, purchasing, renovating, crusing, maintenance, and sales. There is no need to be a member of the MBS to access the Metal Boat Society Facebook page. To become a member of the Facebook site, go to Metal Boat Society in Facebook and request membership.
