Built these 3 plus the one in garage behind me in 6 weeks, last year at this time, for the Kid Build A Boat booth at the Houston Boat Show.

Sad part is maybe 1 in 3 will ever see the water, maybe sand boxes? Each kid that helps build, gets a free chance to win the boat, and the unlucky parent gets to take it home!

Moving in on this Monday, and again on Wednesday. Three finished home built boats, one Squirt under construction, one 1960 16' Wood Cruiser's Inc., 8' pram for the Kids to build during the show, and 11 antique outboards.

Club will have 10 plus boats and about 50 outboards on display at entry to show! Kid Build A Boat, Kid Build An Engine, and Kid Paint A Boat will be in center area of show.

Please come if, you are in the area, January 6 to the 15th!

Thanks
