It’s “About Time” to christen this boat!

  • Philadelphia Wooden Boat Factory (Frankford area) was founded in 1996 by Geoffrey McKonly, who believed disengaged youth needed a hands-on activity in a constructive environment to help them develop and apply academic skills. Nearly two decades later, the organization works to engage urban teens in hands-on boat building and on-water programming to nurture the problem solving, communication and collaboration skills needed to become confident, capable adults.
