Farley Boat Works, the manufacturers of the iconic Farley Boats that were built to accommodate the needs of Port Aransas fishing guides from 1915-1975, is once again producing boats. It was purchased and renovated last year by the Port Aransas Preservation and Historical Association. The building is a museum, with an exhibit that portrays the role of the Farley Boat in Port A history, as well as a classroom. Several boat building teachers are passing on the craft of building boats distinct to Mustang Island to their students. They are beginning with the project of building a Port A skiff. After the skiff, they will build sailing and rowing skiffs that were common during the height of the Tarpon fishing years. Then, they plan to build a Farley Tarpon boat and a Texas Scow Sloop.
