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 Kachemak V-Bottom Dory Nearing Completion

Robert Gunderson recently completed his 17' Kachemak V-Bottom dory hull, and got on the trailer. He did a great job - the workmanship is evident. It won't be long now, with just some interior details left to complete. Very soon, he should be ready to enjoy the water on his new homebuilt boat. By the way, from his registration code, it's in Washington State.

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.
