Join WoodenBoat Magazine’s Family of Boaters
Build your own real boat with your family or group in two to three days, and then take it home with you!
Family BoatBuilding was developed as a way to bring families and groups together into a fun, achievementoriented project—and to get more families on the water! Family BoatBuilding provides an inexpensive introduction to boating, beginning with the basic construction of a dinghy or skiff, and ending with the family’s first outing on the water in their very own boat.
Anyone can build Family BoatBuilding boats
Every kind of family grouping or organization is invited to be part of Family BoatBuilding: grandparents, parents, and children; Boy and Girl Scout troops; friends and neighbors; associations and church groups; at-risk community groups.
Any organization can produce a Family BoatBuilding event!
- 4-H groups
- local maritime museums
- non-profit associations
- and well-meaning individuals.
