Setting — Just off Eggemoggin Reach, Center Harbor seems to be the spiritual and actual home of the contemporary wooden boat movement. Notable — A half-mile walk, the tiny village of Brooklin (population 850) is home to the Brookline Inn, restaurant & pub, Morning Moon Cafe, library, post office, the well-supplied Brooklin General Store (fish & lobster, too), a marine chandler, Betsy's Sunflowe and a half dozen galleries. The mooring field is filled with the products of Brooklin's boat builders -- from prams to offshore yachts. On the other side of town, The Wooden Boat School (see Marina Report), teaches boat-building skills and publishes WoodenBoat Magazine. Marine photographer Benjamin Mendlowitz's Noah Publications publishes a series of books on wooden boats.


And nearby Bridges Point Boat Yard, builds Joel White's classic-looking (fiberglass) sloop.
At the foot of the long fixed wharf, a floating deep-water dinghy dock berths a flotilla of wooden dinks. For those who appreciate a sleek downeast sheer and are enamored with this romantic craft, Brooklin is a destination.
