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.

24' V-Bottom Chesapeke Dory Launched in Finland

I recently received this picture and email:

Hi Jeff,

We are now launched our new a boat. We were test drive today in 3-4 ft chop and this boat worked very well! It is very nice, very seaworthy and pretty looking. And also absolutely dry drive in this condition.

I am very positively surprised about that!

A Boat build work took 4 months and about 200 hours with my brother. And now we can enjoy about salary when we drive by own a boat.

Thanks very much about good plans and instructions.

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.
