Boat Building

The LRWP’s “Rowing on the Raritan Boat Building Project” seeks volunteers to participate in boat-building to provide the inaugural fleet of a community-based rowing program on the Raritan River. We construct cedar strip rowing and paddles during scheduled workshops and community build days. No experience required. Volunteers learn through hands-on activities.

With many thanks to Derek Hartwick, Head Rowing Coach of the United States Merchant Marine Academy, for serving as project lead.

Requirements for Participation:   

Age 13+

No boat-building experience required

Free to register and participate. See our events page for boat build dates and to register.
