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 Carolinian Dory Launched in Virginia

Jason Thomas Insley just posted these pictures of his Carolinian build oin my Facebook page. He did a great job. That's a 90 horse motor, though - too much for this boat, but he doesn't report any handling issues. Maybe he only opens it up to 1/4 throttle. No problem with the weight of the motor, though.

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.
