Spring has officially arrived, and our kayak builders are right on schedule to finish their boats in time for good weather. This week our 7th-9th grade students from Española put the final coats of paint on their boats. Our launch date is quickly approaching!
Each student designed his or her own boat and selected colors.
As the coats of paint were layered on and the end of our winter-long project drew near, smiles got wider and wider!
Of course, with painting there was a little bit of time where all we could do was sit and watch the paint dry (and discuss buoyancy)…
… and then we got back to painting!
We’re really looking forward to getting these boats in the water! We’re also looking for paddles for these boats, so if you have an older one that you wouldn’t mind donating, please give us a call (or send us an email)!
