Boatbuilding Tips and Tricks
I've been compiling this blog of boatbuilding tips and tricks, plus launchings and in-progress boatbuilding projects for over five years now. The vast majority of the questions I receive by email have already been asked by someone else, so if you take the time to read through the archives, you'll probably run across many the questions you may already have plus find answers to questions you haven't thought of yet. You also get a chance to look through many of the projects that others are building. I try to include as many of the photos I receive from builders as well, some from facebook pages.

Recently received these pictures and note from a builder up in Maine:
Sending pictures of my Oysterman Carolina Dory. I am using a 9.9 4-stroke Yamaha.... so very low powered. Headed to Florida May 7th with reservations at Collier state park as my first stop. Will be camping and exploring for three weeks. This has been a great leaning experience hopefully it will end up being useful also. Three months into retirement so wanting to get a lot of usage from this boat this summer.
Nice job there Bob. I envy you, retiring then camping and fishing Florida - Sounds like a blast!

Please don't be embarrassed to send in photos of your projects. I get a lot of emails from people who tell me about their build but never send any pictures. I'd love to see them, as would all of the other people who are either building a boat or thinking about it. They need all the encouragement they can get.
