The Connecticut River Museum in Essex, Connecticut, is offering a workshop where participants can build themselves a CRM 12, a slightly adapted Bevin’s Skiff kit that is produced in limited quantity by the Alexandria Seaport Foundation.

The boat design is inspired by the traditional small boats that have been built along the river for hundreds of years. Boatbuilding groups of up to 4 people may participate. Children over age 10 are welcome. All kit supplies will be provided and experienced boatbuilders will be there to assist you. You will leave with a constructed rowboat at the end of the weekend.

For more information and registration go to the Connecticut River Museum’s skiff building workshop.
