Port Aransas Family Boat Building

Family Boatbuilding at the Port Aransas Wooden Boat Festival.
Friday, April 6, 2018 to Sunday, April 8, 2018

Would you or your family like to build a boat with expert supervision along with 3 other families? If so, sign up now for the Family Boatbuilding event at the Port Aransas Wooden Boat Festival (April 6-8, 2018). Class size: Space limited to 4 boats. Details here.

The double-ended Quick Canoe 155 comes from the drawing board of Australian designer Michael Storer. It is a simple to build yet capable canoe of the Pirogue family. The kit is built from marine grade miranti plywood and cypress timbers. This boat is 15′5″ and weighs in around 45 pounds.

If you prefer a motorized craft, the Quick Canoe Electric with a transom for mounting the engine may be just the thing (motor not included). At 15′5″ this boat offers a quiet, effortless way to enjoy the fresh air, sun and water.

Each family (it can be a single adult or up to 4 people including kids as young as 10) will take home a completed, unpainted boat at the end of the class. The boats all weigh well under 100 pounds and can be carried in the back of a pickup truck or on top of a car. All materials except paint are included in the cost.
