Family Boatbuilding

Fun for the whole Family

Would you or your family like to build a boat with expert supervision along with 3 other families? If so, sign up now for the Family Boatbuilding event at the Port Aransas plyWooden Boat Festival (Oct 20-22, 2017).

Families will build a 12-ft Port Aransas Skiff. This compact version of the popular Port Aransas Skiff will handle up to a 7.5-HP outboard motor. Your skiff will be built out of marine plywood and other marine grade materials. We’ll start the class with a pile of parts at 9:00 a.m. Friday in a tent at Roberts Point Park and finish Sunday afternoon with a maiden voyage in the harbor.

Paint your boat when you get home and take it fishing, bird-watching or cruising. It can be carried in the back of a pickup truck or on the top of your car. The finished boat weighs about 100 pounds.
