Hands On Boats is designed for adults who are interested in wooden boats and want to be part of constructing a new boat while learning-by-doing alongside a master boat builder.

From May-October 2018, HANDS ON BOATS will continue construction of a replica Piscataqua River Wherry based on the lines taken off of an historic vessel, which is part of the Strawbery Banke Museum collection.
