From: Houston Boat Show

It's 2017 Houston International Boat, Sport & Travel SUPER SHOW.  With the Spotlight on over 1,000 Boats and RVs, Plus 100's of Fishing, Sport, Travel, Outdoor Gear and Art Exhibits.  And great surprises for the whole family.

The Boat Show offers hands on activities for kids!  Children of all ages are invited on Saturdays and Sundays to help build an 8-foot wooden dinghy-style boat, help rebuild a 1955 Evinrude 5½ hp classic outboard motor and/or paint in color on our white enamel 8' pram. The Southwest Chapter of the Antique and Classic Boat Society will conduct supervised boat-building sessions on both Saturdays, Jan. 7th and Jan. 14th and both Sundays, Jan. 8th and Jan. 15th.  This event is open free of charge to all children who wish to participate. The boat is an 8-foot pram-style dinghy. All the wood pieces will have already been cut. Assembly is by clamps, glue and screws driven by battery-powered drills.  During the show each participating child will be issued a ticket to hold and we will conduct a drawing at the end of the last session to select the winner who gets to keep the finished boat!  Children can also help rebuild a 1955 Evinrude 5½ hp classic outboard motor! This will be a real nuts and bolts, hands-on experience on how all the individual parts fit together to make up a real operating engine. We will also issue tickets to participating "wrench-bending" kids for a separate drawing at the end of the show for a 3hp antique motor to take home and rework on their own.
