We're also happy to build your DragonFlyer for you if you prefer.

Getting started with your DragonFlyer

When the first flock of DragonFlyers are ready, we’ll be offering a one-day Getting Started workshop for those who would like to come to Brooklin to pick up their kits. We’ve done similar workshops for folks building our Somes Sound 12 1/2s and they’ve been a great success: everyone really enjoyed getting a chance to go over the project with John and ask lots of questions and meet others who will be building at the same time. These groups have stayed in touch with each other, and very much enjoy talking things over and helping each other out as they build.

Not only can you come to lovely Brooklin, the boatbuilding capital of the world, picking up your DragonFlyer kit in Brooklin also saves you several hundred dollars on shipping. We’ll pack the parts so they will travel well and help you load up.

You’ll be able meet the first Dragonflyer, Zip, and also her sibling, Zap, (under construction). We’ll take a close look at all the kit parts, go over the building process, answer questions, have lunch, talk (and answer questions) then load up the DragonFlyer kits for the trip home. Those staying over in Brooklin may want to get together over dinner at the Brooklin Inn that night; this has proven to be a popular part of previous workshops.

If you can’t make a workshop day but would like to pick up your DragonFlyer at our shop in Brooklin, that’s absolutely fine. If you can’t come to Brooklin, we’ll happily pack and ship your kit to you.
