Apalachicola Maritime Museum - Apalachicola


Build a Boat!  November 19 and December 28.  The Six Hour Canoe will be a good family boat building project which constructs a quality wooden canoe from two 4 x 8 sheets of marine plywood and a few pieces of dimensional lumber and, with epoxy glued seams, is watertight when finished.  When completed, the canoe is 15' 3" in length with a 31 ½" beam. It can be paddled with kayak or canoe paddles.  Inexpensive to build using ordinary tools and materials, the canoe gives everybody access to boat building and a boat. The course runs two days with an optional day of painting on the third day.  The courses are offered starting on November 19 and December 28 .  The AMM will provide all of the materials and instructors to keep you and your friends and family on the right course.  We will build up to four boats in a weekend and group size is limited to four.  The cost is $200 per group and you take the boat home with you on your car top or in the back of a pickup.  (Completed over 2-3 days).  Email us for more information.
