Each family (it can be a single adult or up to 4 people including kids as young as 10) will build one of the boats above. The first is a QT Skiff, designed by noted small boat designer, Jim Michalak. Click HERE for more information about that class. The second option is the Skin-on-Frame KidYak (see above), the perfect boat to build with your young sibling, child or grandchild up to about 90 lbs. Click HERE for more info about that.

We will start building at 1:00 PM Friday and finish Sunday afternoon with a maiden voyage in the harbor. Participation by family and friends is encouraged.

Each family will take home a completly assembled boat at the end of the class. Either boat costs $350 for materials and instruction.

Deadline for registration: Sept. 19
