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 Ka-Joe Quiet Bayou Boat Goes Duck Hunting

Britt Conner has been working on this Ka-Joe Quiet Bayou Boat since mid summer. I designed it for him as a something he could use for hunting and fishing in the Bayous of the Gulf Coast. He completed it recently and took his son duck hunting to initiate its career. Here's what he had to say:

I thought I would send some pics of my son and I's first duck hunt together. We had a blast, and he says he is ready to go back again. Thank you so much for all of the help. Once the season is over I will start working on a step by step tutorial.

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.
