Build a Boat With Your Dad in MaineLearn More
Sometimes the best Father’s Day gift is the one you can both enjoy forever. That’s why we love The WoodenBoat School in Maine.
You and your dad can choose from a variety of classes together. If you have basic woodworking skills, you can take part in the six-day Building the Amesbury Dory-Skiff class. You’ll learn from professional boatbuilder Graham McKay and construct a traditional 14-foot Amesbury rowing skiff with the rest of class.
The skiff is built from traditional methods, according to the school: The bottom and topside are planked in northern white pine, and the frames, stem, and pretty much everything else is crafted from white oak.
At the end of the week, the boat will be given away via lottery system. But, even if you don’t win, you’ll still have the skills necessary to build your own and walk away with memories that’ll last a lifetime. Classes are $900 per person.
