Building a boat together could be a great family project for the winter.  Build your boat now and have it ready for the summer.

Over 50 years ago, my dad and I refurbished my uncle's canvas covered kayak.  It was then passed on to my cousin's children and now has returned to our son.  The canvas Dad and I installed is still in good condition.

I still have fond memories of paddling around the local lakes and the ocean.
