Build Your Own Boat at H. Lee White Marine Museum


OSWEGO, NY – The H. Lee White Marine Museum and Maritime Center is partnering with the Department of Technology at SUNY Oswego and Raby’s ACE Home Center to offer a Boat Building Weekend here in Oswego’s Historic Maritime District.

On June 28, 29 and 30, you and your family can join in an instructional, hands-on program that culminates in a completed boat for your family’s use.

Eric and Nicole Davis, of Central Square, sit in the skiff their family built in 2009, during the H. Lee White Marine Museum and Maritime Center's Family Boat Building Weekend. This year, the same three boats shown in this picture will be offered as options to build.

This is our seventh year offering this unique opportunity and there are three styles of boats to choose from.

All materials are provided, but a limited number of kits are available.

Compared to other boat building programs in the Northeast, this workshop is made more affordable thanks to the generous support of Raby’s ACE Home Center.

At least one responsible adult, parent or guardian over the age of 18 years, must be included in each family or group and there is an age minimum of 9 years old for the children due to the skills needed to complete the project. Groups of at least two are requested.

You must register as soon as possible and pre-payment is required.

Space is limited, so participation will be on a first registered and paid basis.

Contact the H. Lee White Marine Museum at 342-0480 or [email protected] for more information.
