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.

Adnan Yilmaz from Turkey just sent me these pictures of his recently launched sailing version of the Huntington Harbor kayak. He built the sail rig himself from Polytarp material. This is the modern, inexpensive way to get sailing. These sails are capable also. They've made some amazing offshore journeys. Drop me a note for some polytarp sail and spar construction advice.
Looks 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.
