The Center for Wooden Boats, which operates on Lake Union, is cutting back its hours and canceling two regattas this year because of funding problems.
In a letter sent to members and volunteers, executive director of the center Betsy Davis said it will cut three staff positions, reduce hours of the boat-rental shack and cancel two regattas. In addition, she said, the center will have to move out of the nearby Armory when the Museum of History & Industry moves in.
