  • Event Description: Would you or your family like to build a boat with expert supervision along with 5 other families? If so, sign up now for the Family Boatbuilding event at the Port Aransas plyWooden Boat Festival.

    Each family (it can be a single adult or up to 4 people including kids as young as 10) will build a QT Skiff, designed by noted small boat designer, Jim Michalak. This fine little “Flattie” skiff is perfect for fishing, birdwatching or just messing around in boats. It can be carried in the back of a piccup truck or on top of a car. The boat is 13 feet by 45 inches and weighs 75 pounds.

    Each student will take home a completed unpainted boat at the end of the class. Materials will be provided.
