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.

Dimitri Karavias posted this on my facebook page:
Not finished with my Carolinian build, but could not resist a sea test. It was great! I will admit I was concerned about putting a 25 hp motor on a 18' boat, but it planed at half throttle like everyone said. I am very pleased with the way it is turning out.
Dimitri should be proud of how nicely it's turning out. The family looks like they're having just as much fun as he is, too!
Here's more on the Carolinian: 18' Carolinian, Carolina Style Dory Boat Plans.

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.
