Was great when it was open. Restored boats and other handmade items. Info available on history of each boat. Sad it closed but due to deaths.

Owner sold everything at auction in 2013. Very sorry to see it go, the boats were extraordinary. Two different maritime museums bought the major stuff, so those beautiful boats are now being appreciated by many more people. A sad loss for Welaka, though.
