History of the Farley Boat Works

Boat Building

Farley Boat Works FaceBook Page

Established 1916 – Re-established 2011

The sounds of the boat shop can be heard as soon as a visitor enters the building.  Visitors see the shop in action and watch boats being built.  Thus the shop is a living exhibit.

Starting the Process

We began the process of teaching boat building by training several teachers.  Doyle Marek, who created and then ran the boat building program at the Port A schools, was our head trainer.  He taught a select group of our folks to build a Port A skiff.  These simple but highly useful boats are distinct and unique to our island.

Once this process was understood and we built a boat or two to see how our shop functions, we expanded to offering classes to the public who want to build a skiff for themselves.

Next step is to re create the small rowing/sailing skiffs that were so common during the Tarpon Texas era.  This fleet of boats will be available for use at the City Marina during the “season”.  And finally, we will tackle building a Farley Tarpon boat.   Stay tuned.
