Annual Family Boat Building
(All day)

Dates

- Applications Due: Monday, April 20

- Mandatory Session: Thursday, May 14

- Boat Building: Friday - Sunday, May 15 - 17

- Sailing Lesson: A weekend day in June

 

Not building this year? Come over and check it out!

 

Family boatbuilding is grounded in the belief that a family will bond and grow together by completing a grand project together. In the past thirteen years we have helped sixty-six families get on the water together and enjoy the experience of a lifetime. Participating families experience the joy and pride of watching a pile of lumber grow into a beautiful and useful boat through their own efforts. In the process, they grow as a family while they develop woodworking and teamwork skills, learn about our marine heritage and the natural resources of our coastal and estuarine environment, and learn safe on-the-water practices.

 

In the spring of 2015 we will build the Oyster River Cat, a 12' sailboat. A professionally made sail is included. The marine plywood hull has a 5' beam that easily carries two adults or even three in light wind. She is equally adept as a row boat for calm days at the lake.

 

A day of sailing instruction in June at Mendums Pond in Barrington is included in the price of the program. The instructors of the UNH Community Sailing Program will provide a morning of on-shore rigging, safety, and basic theory, followed by an afternoon of on-the-water practice in your new boat.

 

Each family must include at least one child age 12 or older. Extended families or single parents are encouraged to apply.
