WOODS HOLE – Residents on the Cape will have a chance this summer to build their own 10-foot skiff.

The Woods Hole Historical Museum is again holding its Family Boat Building activity from July 25-28.

The boats will be built under a tent on the lawn of the museum on Woods Hole Road.

The boats have been designed by Don Chapin of Chapin Custom Boats and are built with marine plywood and are assembled using modern methods. They are finished with fiberglass cloth below the waterline and a thin layer of epoxy on the interior sole.

Chapin will also be the chief instructor for the event and will be aided by several of the Museum’s boat builders.

In order for the boats to be built in four days all the parts are precut and the tools needed to assemble them will be provided.

The program is limited to four families consisting of no more than two parents and two children 10 or older.

The cost of the program which includes installation and materials is $1,195 for Museum members and $1,295 for non-members.

To register for the event email director@woodsholemuseum.org.
