Saturday, April 2, 2016 to Sunday, April 3, 2016

Build your own boat in a weekend! Each group is assigned its own wooden boat expert who will guide your team every step of the way through the construction of a 12-foot, 90-pound Salt Bay Skiff. On Sunday, after a ceremonial launch and row on Gig Harbor Bay, the skiff will be yours to take home and enjoy forever. Each session spans a Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Upcoming dates include April 2-3, May 7-8 (sold out), June 4-5, and July 9-10. Children age 12 and older are welcome. Call (253) 857-9344 or email to register, or visit for more information.
