SEARSPORT, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Seven students at Searsport High school hand built two shell back dinghies and got lessons in Maine boat building heritage.

School officials worked with the Penobscot Marine Museum to make the project a part of the students science curriculum.

The boats took five months to finish. They will be on display at the Penobscot Marine Museum after June second.

The dinghies are for sale. Proceeds from the boats will go towards funding the project next year.

Anyone interested in buying one of the boats can contact the Searsport High school or the museum. They are priced at 35 hundred dollars each.
