An urgent message to all boatbuilders.  Boat builders use a lot of N95 masks to protect against dust and other particles produced in the process of boat building.  But right now there is a much more urgent need for them by the medical community.  If you have N95 Masks in your inventory of tools donate then now to your local first responders or medical facility.  They are in desperate need of them. We all need to do whatever we can to fight this pandemic.

So you want to start a boatbuilding business?
