2017 Wooden Boat Festival has ended

Peter Wilcox

Captain Peter Wilcox is a Portland architect, licensed Master Mariner, wooden boatbuilder and, until recently, was president of Columbia Riverkeeper. Peter has been exploring the Inside Passage by handbuilt kayak, skiff and sailboat since 1985. His 36’ gaff motorsailer, Ama Natura, was built at the NW School of Wooden Boatbuilding, and is powered, heated, and cooks with 100% reclaimed source certified biodiesel, while using only bio-based lubricants. In 2016 Peter launched the Inside Passage Decarbonization Project to make it possible for those who choose to do so to voyage petroleum-free in the Inside Passage and to replace all fossil fuels there with locally made, waste-based green biofuels within 20 years.
