Build a Sailboat with Your Family in a Weekend

April 14, 2010

Spring has arrived, and with it the UNH Marine Docents’ annual family boat-building workshop. This year, six families will have an opportunity to build a boat while making memories.
Each family will build the Oyster River Cat, a 12-foot sailboat that can carry a family of three for a day of sailing on quiet water. It is easily transported and also serves as an excellent rowboat.
The $975 fee includes all of the boat-building materials and a professionally made sail.
Construction will take place Friday through Sunday, May 21-23, at Kingman Farm in Madbury. Families must include at least one adult and a youth age 12 or older. No prior woodworking experience is required, but participants should have basic skills using hand tools. An experienced docent boat builder will assist each family to ensure a successful experience. 
Because space in the program is limited, each family interested in participating must submit an application by May 1.
