Having fun boating with your family can be as easy as having a dinghy, kayak, or other small boat for use on water near you.
Building your own boat can be a rewarding family project. Bruce tells of he and his Dad covering an old wood frame kayak with new canvas. He remembers hours of enjoyment paddling the completed boat on a lake.
