Boat Building Info

Need help getting started on building your boat?  Need examples of how boats can be built?  We have .PDF files that will show you how it's done.  Just click on the button below.

Please remember that boats can only be constructed using regular cardboard, paper tape, contact cement, and latex paint.  No waxed cardboard, epoxy, styrofoam, wood, plastic, or other materials are allowed.

 You may be wondering where you can get your hands on large sheets of  cardboard, which will make your boat much stronger and cut down on the  building time.   Try asking  folks at the sporting goods stores (Bass Pro Shops, etc.) for the cardboard  boxes their paddle boards and kayaks are shipped in.  These are usually  free for the asking and a good size for a boat.  

Event Parking


There will be several parking areas available for the  event.  The preferred area will be at the King Solomon Mason's Lodge on  Elkins Road.  There will also be parking at the area across the street  from the lodge.  Ancillary parking will be available a short drive away  at Marshall's Garage on Elkins Road.  For participants, we ask that you  come to the Pleasant Lake dam area to drop off your boat before parking  your car.  The drop-off area will be marked.

To see where to drop off your boat or to see where you can park, we've got a map for you.


 Even if you can't make our event, you can still support our club's scholarship efforts.    To make a contribution, please send a check to:
