Join the UNH Marine Docents as we help your family build a boat in 3 days!
Develop woodworking and teamwork skills and learn about our marine heritage and the natural resources of our coastal and estuarine environment.
In this program, we will help you build the Oyster River Cat, a 12' sailboat. A professionally made sail is included. The marine plywood hull has a 5' beam that easily carries two adults or even three in light wind. She is equally adept as a row boat for calm days at the lake.
Age requirements: Each family must include at least one child age 12 or older. This program is not ideal for children younger than age 12 due to the attention span and physical work required; however exceptions have been made for eager, mature 10 and 11-year-olds. Multi-generational families, extended families, and single parents are encouraged to apply.
