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.

Grant Burns recently sent me this email about his 19' Anacapa offshore Pacific Power dory project he's been working on:
"Coming along slowly. About 300 hours in and an estimated 200 to go. Going to try and be patient to get a top result. Aiming for Easter. Tossing up between a 4 stroke yamaha 70hp or a 90hp. The 70 is only 120kgs where as 4 stroke or optimax 90hp is 180kgs."

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.
