These two boats were built at Boston Family Boat Building by 5th graders from the Boston Public Schools during the 2011/12 school year. We relaunched them on April 10 for the Boston Tea Party Ship Museum. They will use them as work boats to maintain the ships at the museum. The student boat builders are so proud to see them on the dock at the museum as we drive by every day on our way to and from the BFBB boat shop at the Fan Pier on Boston Harbor.
These are 10ft flat bottom skiffs built by 5th graders at the Dennis Haley Elementary School in Boston. Materials are: 3/8″ fir, marine ply bottom, white oak stem, frames, knees, rails and keelson, old growth eastern pine planking, silicone bronze fastened. These are the boats launched in June 2011. A new set of 8 boats built this past school year will be launched June 8, 2012.
