Boatbuilding Tips and Tricks

I've been compiling this blog of boatbuilding tips and tricks, plus launchings and in-progress boatbuilding projects for 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.

Kachemak V-Dory Just Launched in Michigan

This post was just made on my Facebook page:

Hey Jeff!

I hope i did you proud. I know i am! 6 months to the day to construct. Minus a few doors and misc. She rides like a dream, even in 4 footers... just have to slow down a bit! My bow changes seem to work out, perhaps not as pretty, but good in lake Saint Clair's confused seas!

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.
