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.

I recently got these pictures of a newly built 17' Tillamook Pacific Power Dory built in Alabama. Though they're called Pacific Dories, certainly this one should be seeing plenty of river, lake and Gulf Coast waters in the south. These boats are ideal for economically powering through shallow or deep water, choppy or smooth, salt or fresh to get to all the great fishin' and huntin' spots. Easy and inexpensive to build too.
The builder did a great job.
Here's more on the Tillamook: 17' Tillamook Pacific Power 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.
