4/16/13 Hull Turning Celebration!
Tuesday, April 16th, the St. Ayles Skiff, built by high school students, was turned right-side up. High school students attending the Bayfront Alternative Education Program at BMC have been building the 22’ St Ayles Skiff since mid-September. Erie teens attending BMC’s after-school program, Project SAIL, have also been working on the skiff. The boat building project is funded by a grant from the Erie Community Foundation. The Skiffs will be used in Erie’s first Community Rowing Program.
