Family Boat Building featured at the Port of Toledo Wooden Boat Show
Provided by Port of Toledo
“Her name is Lotta… as in a Lotta fun to make and looking forward to a Lotta fun on the water.” This is the tribute written by local resident Merrick Kriz about her experience working with her family and friends at the 2007 Port of Toledo Wooden Boat to build a small boat. The Kriz family is proud of the vessel they built called a Nuf, as in “It’s not much, but it’s a ‘Nuf.” These boats are designed by veteran boat builder Carl Chamberlin of Port Townsend, Washington who will be on hand again this year at the eighth annual Port of Toledo Wooden Boat Show to be held on the third weekend in August. Carl and Rick Johnson of Toledo will both be available to help you and your family build your own Nuf. Come be part of the fun at Toledo’s new Waterfront Park and Pavilion and new transient dock.
Our theme this year is The Art of Craft celebrating the art of small boat building, so it is especially a great time to participate. The cost per family group to build your own Nuf is $400. We are also offering scholarships to families who might otherwise be challenged to come up with the fee. We have the capacity to build only six boats, so don’t delay in reserving your family’s spot. The Family Boat Building activity begins one day before the rest of the show on August 17th and continues through the show with a grand launching into Depot Slough on Sunday the 19th .
