    Good to see youth involved in boat building. Do you sell those skiffs?

    We don’t really sell them but could build one for anyone who wants to pay for materials.

    The students pay for their materials before we start. I have built boats for community members before. Basically students do the work. Someone else pays for materials. Labor is basically free, but remember. They are students.

    Hey now even I can understand Dat. :)

    Don't you have a donation jar ??? I'll send you one if you would like. I hope you let the folks who have them built that the students work for donations.

    We have a similar system up heaha. but some of the folks who buy Aluminum ramps from the school do so because there quite inexpensive. The problem is you have to get on a list and that list sometimes favors some customers with much money. (Power) Guess that may be a problem in most places when you give out freebees. :eek: :)

    I have one very similar. It was built at the Land Mark School In Beverly Ma.
    I had the seams glassed added a skeg. I have two rowing stations. I think they call it a prides rock skiff.
