Two Weekends – March 28 & 29, and April 4 & 5, 2020, 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm

A parent/teen (or adult/teen) boatbuilding adventure!

Teams of two will build an 11’ 8” rowing/sailing plywood skiff. Suitable for a 2-HP outboard, if that is your preference.

We will follow the plans and instructions for the Alexandria Seaport Foundation’s “Bevin’s Skiff” including: gluing plywood sheets together with a scarf joint, drawing the bottom and sides onto the plywood from plan, cutting boards to form ribs, stem, transom, chine log, outwales, seats, and sailing parts (if desired).

Location: Pioneer Park - Workshop

Pre-registration required by March 16th.
