I Built it Myself
“I Built It Myself” is proudly sponsored by Interlux Yacht Finishes
The 25th Annual WoodenBoat Show will once again showcase a crowd favorite: “I Built It Myself”.
If you’ve built a trailerable wooden boat that you’d like to show, we would love to hear from you! This land-based display of home-built boats will be located on and surrounding the Village Green at Mystic Seaport, June 24–June 26, 2016. There is no entry fee for the I Built It Myself exhibit, but you must be willing to discuss your wooden boat project with attendees. In the past we’ve had up to 50 beautifully crafted boats and proud owners/builders. The collection has included kayaks, skiffs, daysailers, canoes, and much more by a variety of designers such as Iain Oughtred, Joel White, Chesapeake Light Craft, Arch Davis, and William & John Atkin. This exhibit always offers plenty of inspiration!
- All boats must have a wooden hull.
- Boat must NOT be for sale.
- Boat and builder must attend all three days of the show.
Interlux and The WoodenBoat Show would like to congratulate David Alves of South Dartmouth, MA whose boat “The Other Girl” won the 2015 “I Built it Myself” Award presented by Interlux.
