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 Albion Recently Launched

Zachary Frangos recently launched his new homebuilt Albion power dory. This is his third Spira International boat project. He began with a Huntington Harbor kayak, then completed the green 14' Seneca you see in some of the headers of this site, and now just completed the 19' Albion. He started the boat in California, then was transferred to Massachusetts, where he completed the work. These pictures are of his family enjoying the waters around Cape Cod.

Beautiful job there, Zachary. Thank you for pictures. Have lots of fun this summer with your new boat!

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.
