Each group is assigned their 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.
The 2-day workshop is held Saturdays and Sundays from 9am-5pm. Three boatbuilding groups of 2-5 members participate each session. (Children: 12 years and older are welcome)
Over the weekend you will be introduced to joinery, gluing, clamping, sawing, beveling, planing, sanding, precise measuring and the use of many of the hand tools that are still used by wooden boat builders throughout the world.
