ABM Offers Family Boatbuilding Course


The Antique Boat Museum (ABM) in Clayton, New York, is offering a hands-on learning experience for families and small groups this summer.

During its weeklong Family Boatbuilding Course, families will work with experts to construct and launch their very own 11-foot, 6-inch Bevin’s Skiff.

Organizers say the course is open to all ages and is also ideal for school clubs, scout packs and church groups. No prior experience is necessary.

The ABM will also offer the Howland Family Scholarship to a child from the Thousand Islands or Alexandria Bay Central School districts in case they need financial assistance. The workshop runs July 10 to 15 and costs $1,475. Register by June 19 with Debra Rantanen at
