New 15' Alamitos V-Bottom Dory Launched in Winnepeg, Manitoba, Canada

I just received these photos and email:

I have completed and launched my Alamitos boat. It was a great project which took me about 4 mos of work from start to finish. I worked on it in the evenings and a couple full days. I purchased a 40hp Evenrude E-Tec motor and added Smart Tabs. The Smart Tabs worked great.

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.
