Adventures in a Boat

5 teens who have sailed around the world solo
Here’s the story behind the adventurers 18 years old and younger who have completed the trip. Most of them, you can bet, were unschoolers, at least during the time of their adventures.

Build a Boat

Milk Carton Boat for Racing
We recently had a very “mooo-ving” experience: we built a boat entirely out of milk cartons to enter in a hometown race! Using 150 milk cartons, we had to design a boat that would carry all three of us in a race.

Boating Safety

Boat Ed
Welcome to the site for official boating safety courses. This is the only place on the Web where you can obtain your official boat and personal watercraft (PWC or jet skis) safety course certificate issued by your state government’s boating agency.

Online Boating Course
There’s a general boating course and a personal watercraft course (jet skis and the like). The Online Boating Course is approved to meet the basic boater education requirements in certain states. Be sure to check the regulations in your state. Call (800) 336-2628 for more information.
