Family Boat Building Program Saturday and Sunday, February 28- March 1, 2015

Gig Harbor, WA. – Gig Harbor BoatShop Presents Family Boat Building Program
Saturday and Sunday, February 28-March 1, 2015

Build your own boat in a weekend! Build it at the Gig Harbor BoatShop’s next Family Boat Building event. No experience necessary. Each group is assigned their own Boatwright who will guide them every step of the way through the construction of a 12’, 90-pound Salt Bay Skiff. On Sunday, after a ceremonial launch and row in Gig Harbor Bay outside the BoatShop, the skiff and memories for a lifetime are yours to take home and enjoy forever! The workshop runs both days from 9am-5pm and allows for 3 groups of 2-5 members each. Over the weekend you will be introduced to the skills, techniques and hand tools that are still used by wooden boat builders throughout the world today! Spots fill quickly, so book your spot today! $525 for member, $595 for non-members (ask us about becoming a member of GHB).
