Launching their Boats

The highlight of the event was the unveiling of six Bevin's Skiffs, which were constructed by students from various schools in the Milwaukee area and participants in AHB's Buildings & Boat job skills training program. The students involved in each boat-building project had the opportunity to row their newly crafted vessels. Check out each of them below.
