First held in 2011, our annual SikaKFlex Quick & Dirty Boat Building Competition has quickly become one of the “must-see” events of the summer season. Sponsored by the Sika Corporation, a supplier of Marine Adhesives & Sealants,  the event provides would-be boat designers and builders a chance to showcase their creative skills and talents.

THE CHALLENGE: Using only a provided supply of plywood, plastic cable ties, and adhesive/sealant (SikaFlex 291 of course!) , two member teams must build, paint and then paddle their design around a designated course in Port Jefferson Harbor located just offshore of Harborfront Park.

At the conclusion of the race awards are presented to the three front-place race winners as well as for best Original Boat Design.  Following the award ceremony our annual raffle is conducted which rewards some lucky person(s) with the current years newly completed raffle boat. If you, your friends or family, or members of your organization are looking for a fun and entertaining event to participate in this Summer, then the Quick & Dirty Boat Building Competition is definitely for you.
