Family Boat Building

Build an 8 foot Elegant Punt using simple hand tools under the guidance of Joe Novello and volunteers. This boat is built in 2 days at the Wooden Boat show. This is a good project for youth, but anyone can participate (grandparents, parents, cousins, friends)!  Cost will includes all of the materials and instruction, except for the final finish of paint or varnish which has to be completed at home. The boats will be ready for their first launch on Sunday afternoon. Handmade paddles will be provided to each builder to use and take home with their boat, but please remember to bring your own personal floatation device. Recommended group size is 2-3 people per boat with at least one adult.  All ages beginning at 8 years old can work on this project.
