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.

This beautiful Albion Pacific Power Dory is nearing completion in Louisiana. The builder has about three years into it so far and his attention to detail and workmanship are apparent. Yes, that's even an air conditioner and he says it keeps the interior a cool 67 degrees when it's 100 outside. The hull was stretched a bit from 19 to 21-1/2 feet.
NICE! Looks like lots of fun is in the works when the job is complete.

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.
