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.

Newly Launched Huntington Harbor Kayak in New York

Fred Soviero recently completed and launched his Huntington Harbor Kayak home built boat project. He sent me this email.

Hi Jeff,

I just finished my first boat it is the Huntington Harbor, I launched it at Jones Beach NY see pic attached, just wanted to say thanks for the free plans, it was fun to build and it paddles great can't wait to start a new boat maybe a Pacific power dory.


Free Kayak Boat Plans

I used to go to Jones Beach when I was visiting my grandmother in the summer in the late 1950s and early '60s.

Remember, the Huntington Harbor plans are free and may be downloaded at: Huntington Harbor Free Kayak Plans.

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.
