Interlux Sponsor

June 30, 2017

AkzoNobel’s Interlux® paint brand has once again sponsored the “I Built It Myself” wooden boat competition at the WoodenBoat Show, June 30 – July 2 on the village green at Mystic Seaport in Mystic, Connecticut.

The 2017 “I Built It Myself” Best in Show Award will be presented by WoodenBoat magazine and Interlux on Saturday afternoon, July 1.

“I Built It Myself” provides a stage to as many as 50 beautifully crafted boats and attracts the interest of boat owners, builders and enthusiasts alike. In previous years, the collection has included kayaks, skiffs, daysailers, canoes and other crafts created by a variety of designers such as Lain Oughtred, Joel White, Chesapeake Light Craft, Arch Davis and William & John Atkin.

Providing visitors with informative demonstrations on a host of practical boating projects such as carpentry, building, sanding, painting and upholstery, the WoodenBoat Show gives boat enthusiasts an opportunity to learn some indispensable DIY techniques enabling them to carry out their own projects to a prize-winning quality.
