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.

New Clemente V-Bottom Dory in the Water in Sweden

Tor Jansson just sent me this email and pictures all the way from the Baltic Sea:

Hi Jeff,
My boat-project is nearly finished. It's been put into the sea and tested. Everything works great. The engine is only 20 hp, the max. speed is 12 knots, it takes only 0,4 lit/nm at 8 knots. I think the boat feels very safe. Sending you some pictures.

Nice job Tor! The boat looks fantastic, and for those of you metrically challenged, that's over 10 miles per gallon at 8 knots - amazing economy.

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.
