Ryan Conforti built a boat rack to benefit of the Cohasset Maritime Institute and the Center for Student Coastal Research. The structure, made of pressure-treated lumber, can hold up to eight boats and can accommodate several kinds of boats such as kayaks, canoes, single rowing boats, and double rowing boats.
