Chris Law's 16' Wye River Garvey-Dory Framed

Chris Law has nearly completed the framing of his Wye River Garvey-Dory. At the rate he's going, he should be ready to get it wet in the spring to get going on this year's fishing season. He's doing a great job, too.

Tillamook Pacific Power Dory Launch

Nick Slamp just sent me these pictures and videos of his newly launched Tillamook, Pacific Power Dory. He and his dad, Jim Slamp built the boat last year. The boat is registered in Massachusetts, so I'm sure he'll get a great chance to use it in the rivers, bays and a bit of ocean water in that great boating area. It came out beautiful, too.

Boatbuilding Pictures

Boat Building Photos

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.

I believe in offering you all the information you need to learn more about how to build a boat. That's why I offer free videos, free ebooks, and free reports. There's even some free plans available to isiders and some seminars I've delivered. To join, just click below:
