Build Your Own Boat

Smell the wood shavings and feel the pride as your boat takes shape. You'll have to do your homework on which kit to choose but as boat builders and instructors, we think boat kits are a great way to introduce you to the art of boat building and get you on the water without paying a small fortune.
