Each year at our Wooden Boat Show, one of the most popular activities is building your own boat! Teams start on Friday morning (August 20th this year) and work on their boats during the festival, with a launch party on Sunday (the 22nd) at 3:30, where the "Nuf"s take their owners on a maiden voyage.
The "Nuf" is a 9 1/2 foot Featherweight (30 lbs.) Dory designed by Carl Chamberlin of Port Townsend, Washington. All the materials and instruction are included in the $400 fee. You'll work under the supervision of Carl and local boatwright Rick Johnson to complete your own boat.
We still have two slots available, so visit our website for more information and registration forms. www.portoftoledo.org. You'll also find the 'Suggested Tools' list there.
We also have scholarship forms on the website for those who would love to build their own boat but maybe can't afford the fee.
Bon Voyage! We'll see you at the boat show!
