Build your own surfboard class

Hi Joey,
After reading the GoodMorning Gloucester post about the First Annual Surf Competition at Good Harbor Beach last weekend, I thought the Gloucester surfing community might like to know about a Build Your Own Surfboard class we’re running at Lowell’s Boat Shop in Amesbury. (So what’s the relationship between Amesbury and Gloucester? Lowell’s Boat Shop, the oldest continuously operating boat shop in the country — and a nonprofit — built the Banks dories used by the Gloucester fishing fleet back in the 1800’s! A longtime connection!) Wondering if you could post the blurb below the on GoodMorning Gloucester? Thanks for considering.
All best,
The Lowell’s Crew

Thursday, May 16 through Sunday, May 19 

8AM – 5PM each day

**Register before MAY 1 for best price.

This workshop is a collaboration between Lowell’s Boat Shop and Grain Surfboards from Kittery, ME. Students will have their pick from a number of board styles, and will build their own boards under the guidance of two instructors from Grain. All materials(sustainably grown cedar, zero VOC bio-epoxy, etc.) are included in the tuition cost. We’ll even provide a delicious breakfast and lunch!
Email info@lowellsboatshop.com or call 978-834-0050 for information.

We Had Solar Installed By Cazeault Solar. We Got Through Winter With An Electricity Credit And Our House Is 100% Electric. Look At Our March Bill-

I’m not sure how much more I could boil it down but here’s the latest bill (National Grid OWES US MONEY!)-

We have a $12.74 credit after the whole winter!  Do you have any idea how great a feeling that is?  Knowing in years past in an electric baseboard heat house people are paying up to $800 a month in the winter and we are toasty warm and not paying a cent?   That’s AWESOME!

Do you want to put solar on your house and make money?

Fill out the form and I’ll have lifelong Gloucester resident Tim Sanborn from Cazeault Solar call you to go over your options for free.  he installed ours and hundreds others and every single person I’ve spoken with that’s done it LOVES IT!

Building Home

Cape Ann Home

medallion cabinetry kitchen vineyard maple finish

Creating a home always becomes something different once you start. You never end up where you thought you would. And often that’s for the best. A home can often feel like a far away dream, something that couldn’t really exist. Home is ever evolving.

These homeowners never thought they were going to be people that would build a house, but they did it. And now 30 years later, they are re-investing in their home by remodeling their kitchen. It’s a big deal, and an intense process. But in the end, it’s an investment in both the resale value of your home and your happiness. How is that not worth it?
