K&C is a volunteer, non-profit organization committed to preserving heritage watercraft and the skills required to create and restore antique boats. We are also committed to using boatbuilding and boating skills to transform the lives of kids and youth from lives of no possibility to ones of unlimited possibility.
In a January 2013 post, we updated volunteer restoration efforts
of the "Gas-Hopper" hydroplane race boat. A boat owned and
raced by our boatshop hero, the late Dave Norton. The restoration
activities remain an ongoing volunteer project.
Now from the boxes, dust, and years of storage, Grade 12 student,
Dana, brought out the trophies, plaques, pictures and other Dave Norton
memorabilia for clean up, polishing, and the odd minor repair. Her
volunteer project - complete the Dave Norton heritage display in our booth
located in the Beaumont Mill. Dana's volunteer hours are credited to the
high school community hours required (40) to graduate this June.
The Dave Norton memorabilia display is complete and looks
