This Compass Skiff and matching oars were built by students in the Proactive Education Program at Biddeford Middle School. Completed Spring of 2018, every piece of the boat was built from scratch using plans designed by Chase Small Craft of Saco, Maine. The boat seats are made from a giant oak tree that had fallen in Kennebunk, Maine and was milled by John Speight of Wells, Maine who donated it in honor of the students’ great accomplishment and to preserve the tree’s natural history.
 
Habitat for Humanity partners with people in our community and all over the world to help them build or improve a place they can call home. The Compass Project uses boat building and rowing to provide positive direction to youth by encouraging the development of personal responsibility coupled with community and environmental engagement.
