The Southwest Florida Boat Building Festival


The Shipwright Shop has been honored to host Southwest Florida Boat Building Festival for two years.  The events proved to be beneficial for both the community and the marine economy.  The festival consisted of 5 to 6 groups of youths in competition in building these wooden skiffs.  The Sea Scouts of Cape Coral won the contests two years in a row.  The skiffs were then donated or kept by their respective donor.  It was a great time and learning experience by all who participated.  We had carpenters come from all over to help supervised the teams.  We have put these events on hold for Fort Myers due to lack of donors.  You can see more pictures at our Boatbuilding Festival page:
