AkzoNobel’s Interlux is once again the sponsor of the “I Built It Myself” trailerable wooden boat competition at the June 26-28 WoodenBoat Show on the village green at Mystic Seaport in Mystic, Conn.

I Built It Myself” annually attracts as many as 50 crafted boats and proud owners and builders. In previous years, the collection has included kayaks, skiffs, daysailers, canoes and other vessels from designers such as Iain Oughtred, Joel White, Chesapeake Light Craft, Arch Davis, and William and John Atkin.

Also at the WoodenBoat Show, the experts from AkzoNobel will be hand to brief visitors and answer questions about Interlux products specially formulated for wooden boats, including Schooner and Brightside Polyurethane.
