If you think traditional boat building has its challenges, you don’t have to look any further than the 8th Annual Beaufort BoatBuilding Challenge. It’s an afternoon of fun and competition as the event showcases the art, skill and speed of traditional boat builders. The event takes place on Saturday, May 5. Eighteen teams of two will get a set of boat plans, a stack of wood and four hours of time to construct a skiff. Building a boat in four hours has its challenges. As expected, sometimes the results for the participants are unexpected. Some boats get completed and others don’t.
