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.

The First Wye River Garvey Hits the Water

Frank Raposelli is all smiles as he takes his homebuilt 16' Wye River garvey (the very first ever completed) for its maiden voyage:

Frank says it performs very well with 25 horses and is pleased with it's performance and handling.

I say Frank did a great job and deserves to be proud of his accomplishment.

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.
