The “Adventure” begins….

Family Boat Building Adventure 2017

The Reedville Fishermen’s Museum is once again hosting their annual Family Boat Building Weekend. Your craft, a 9’6” rowing skiff, is built from a kit with hand tools and basic wooden boat building techniques that have been in use for generations on the Chesapeake Bay. The boat is completed and ready for painting at the end of the 2 ½ day adventure. Experienced and dedicated instructors from the Museum’s Boat Shop have created the kit and will be on hand to guide your team through-out the weekend

 

This is a great opportunity to spend time with your family in the quiet rhythms of hand tools and ripples from the nearby creek. When you leave on Sunday, you’ll have memories of fun, knowledge of basic skills and a nice little boat as a result of your labors and laughter
