Hundreds of Bevin’s Skiffs have been built around the world. Now, you can too!  Thanks to the generosity of our friends at the Alexandria Seaport Foundation and Building to Teach, now you have an opportunity to build this boat, at no charge — as long as you build it with kids.

(If you’re only building it for yourself, you should purchase a set of plans from the Seaport). (Boat kits are also available from the Seaport Foundation.)  There is a lot of great information here that also applies to beginning boatbuilders. Building a Bevin’s Skiff is also a great way to teach hands-on math. For more information go to:
